Yoav Hattab, Phillipe Barham, Yohan Cohen, and François-Michel Saada were killed in the siege at the Hyper Cacher market. All four were buried in Jerusalem.
Yohan and Yoav were hailed as heroes by their fellow hostages, as they were murdered by the Muslim terrorist while seeking to overcome him and free the other hostages in the store.
A total of 17 people were murdered in the January 2015 terror attacks which rocked France and touched off a wave of Muslim terrorism that reached a head in November, when a terror cell of ISIS gunmen and suicide bombers unleashed mayhem in Paris, murdering 130.
A record 7,900 French Jews emigrated to Israel the year of the Hyper Cacher attack, many of them citing fears over anti-Semitism.
Though the exodus has since slowed, a string of anti-Semitic crimes has continued to worry one of Europe’s biggest Jewish communities, numbering an estimated half a million.
