One year after the murder of baker’s wife Ilse, family and friends hold a subdued commemoration: “We are going to light a candle here every year for her”

Several dozen family members and friends gathered at the memorial board for Ilse Michiels, the baker’s wife who was violently killed in Wechelderzande (Lille) exactly one year ago. They each lit a candle to keep the memory of Ilse alive. “It seems like it only happened yesterday,” he said.
