With Lloyd I. Sederer, M.D.
On Sunday afternoon, January 11, 2015, France -- especially Paris -- was the center of an international mobilization following the two horrific attacks committed this past week by radical Islamists in Paris and Vincennes, a suburb to its east.
The first attack took place on Wednesday at the Charlie Hebdo magazine. Twelve people were killed, including five satirical draftsmen (Cabu, Charb , Wolinski, Tignous, Honore), two journalists, and one psychiatrist/journalist, Dr. Elsa Cayat (whom author IA attended medical school with).
The second attack was organized two days later in Vincennes in a kosher supermarket in a section of Paris known for its Jewish residents and shops. Five people were killed, including the terrorist, who claimed to be acting on behalf of the Islamic state. This attack was synchronized with the first, occurring when the two brothers were surrounded by the police in a printing factory outside of the capital.
Real-life scenarios and authoritative information are written in a compassionate, reader-friendly way, including checklists to bring to a doctor’s appointment so you can ask the right questions. For readers who fear they will never see the light at the end of the tunnel, this book gives hope and a path forward.
