Six years after the event, the trial for the Nice attack begins in Paris on September 5, 2022. It is scheduled to last four months. The Nice attack on July 14, 2016 killed 86 people of 19 different nationalities and injured nearly 500. That evening, nearly 30,000 people had come to watch the fireworks in France's second most popular tourist destination. The attack was also the first in France to affect so many children, as it targeted families and friendly groups who had come to enjoy the show. The first objective of a trial is always judicial. It's an important step for those involved, which also helps to restore the importance of each individual story. But a trial can also rekindle painful memories. Solutions do exist to take care of your mental health and that of your loved ones.
