Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris

Schoolchildren observe a minute of silence for slain history teacher Samuel Paty, Monday Nov.2, 2020 in Strasbourg, eastern France.

At schools throughout the country, students will read the letter of Jean Jaurès, a 19th century French thinker and politician, to instructors urging them to teach the country's children to "know France, its geography and its history, its body and its soul."
