On Monday, March 13, at the Fonds de garantie des victimes des actes de terrorisme et d'autres infractions (FGTI), an official tribute was paid to Françoise Rudetzki, who passed away on May 18. The Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne, accompanied by the Minister of Justice, Eric Dupont-Moretti, presided over a ceremony during which a memorial plaque was unveiled.

Victim of a terrorist attack on December 23, 1983, Françoise Rudetzki dedicated her life to the accompaniment, support and recognition of victims. She was notably the inspiration, in 1986, for the Victims' Guarantee Fund.

Henry Rousso, President of the Museum and Memorial of Terrorism, and Elisabeth Pelsez, Director General, were present to pay tribute to the struggle of Françoise Rudetzki, who was also a member of the Museum's Orientation Observatory and who had done a great deal of work for the Museum.
