As the trial of the January 2015 terror attacks opens in Paris, FRANCE 24 speaks to Maryse Wolinski, widow of cartoonist Georges Wolinski, who was assassinated with 11 others in the attack on Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015. A journalist and writer, she has written a book in which she recounts her own personal bid to understand the horror of that day. In the book, Wolinski addresses the slain terrorist Chérif Kouachi, the elder of the two Kouachi brothers who carried out the massacre. She says her visions of him "suffocated" her to the point that she fell ill.
