The young man, raised on the banks of the Dordogne in Coux et Bigaroque, was one of the 90 victims of terrorists during the Bataclan attack on November 13, 2015 in Paris.

It is an extraordinary trial which opens this Wednesday before the Special Assize Court of Paris, that of the attacks of November 13, 2015 committed by jihadist suicide bombers. The toll is terrible, 130 dead and hundreds injured, in Saint-Denis, in the streets of Paris, and in the Bataclan concert hall. There, 90 lives were mowed down by the bullets of terrorists Including that of Maxime Bouffard, the 26-year-old young man grew up on the banks of the Dordogne, in Coux-et-Bigaroque.

A plaque on a wall heated by the sun at Coux-et-Bigaroque “Groupe Scolaire Maxime Bouffard”, another plaque on the clubhouse of the Saint-Cyprien stadium. These memories are inscribed in stone so as not to forget the child of the country. Maxime Bouffard grew up in Le Coux, before moving to Biarritz for audiovisual studies and then Paris. He is one of the 90 victims of the Bataclan. The life of the young man described as endearing, charismatic, whimsical ended that evening.

Every year in July, his friends dedicate a musical festival to him “Les Bouffardises” canceled because of Covid-19 this summer. But it is this memory, this spirit of celebration that they want to perpetuate, beyond the trial from which his friend Pierre Avezou does not expect much. The former captain of the Saint-Cyprien rugby team and co-president of the “Bouffardises” admits that perhaps the passage of justice will be able to relieve some relatives but not him “Maxime is no longer there and we must learn to live with “.

This long-running trial should last nine months, 1,800 civil parties will be represented by more than 300 lawyers. 11 defendants appear in the box of the defendants including the only member of the terrorist commandos still alive, Salah Abdeslam.
