Lassana Bathily

Lassana Bathily was an undocumented migrant from Mali until he became a hero by saving shoppers’ lives during the terrorist attack on a Jewish supermarket in Paris a year ago.
Bathily, a shelf-stacker in the supermarket, helped save
shoppers from terrorist Amedy Coulibaly. The narrative of a Muslim saving Jews from a terrorist made him a positive symbol of France’s diversity. Several days after the violence, Bathily was granted French citizenship by the president himself, something he says had been a dream since his childhood, in a small village on the Mali-Senegal border.
