History teacher, he was beheaded by a Chechen Islamist for teaching freedom of expression. A barbaric murder that leaves France in shock.
He would have liked this beautiful title of "black school hussar". But, if he stood up for his values, he died unarmed. After the assassination of Jewish children in Toulouse, rock fans in Paris, press cartoonists, police officers, a business manager, a priest and many others, the teacher of history-geography of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine becomes the 267th victim of a war that does not speak its name. And yet he had everything of a man of peace, a teacher by vocation, loving his profession: to transmit, to awaken consciences. Samuel Paty, who fell for dedicating a course on freedom of expression, will be honored on November 2, the first day of school.
