German missing since Hamas terrorist attacks – DW – 10/30/2023


The mother of Shani Louk, a German citizen allegedly taken hostage by the Hamas militant group, claims she received information from the Israeli military that her daughter is dead.

“Unfortunately, we learned yesterday that my daughter is no longer alive,” Ricarda Louk told German broadcaster RTL/ntv.

Her sister Adi also confirmed Shani’s death in an Instagram post.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the death of my sister, Shani Nicole ZL (may her memory be a blessing), which occurred on October 7, 2023 during the party massacre in Re’im.”

In a post on social media platform X, formerly Twitter, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said Shani Louk’s body had been “found and identified.”

There has been no official confirmation from the German Foreign Ministry.

Shani Louk disappeared after Hamas terrorist attacks

Shani Louk disappeared while attending the Supernova music festival in southern Israel, which was attacked by Hamas militants on October 7.

Immediately after the terrorist attacks, photos and videos shared online showed a young woman, believed to be Shani, lying face down in a van driven by militants. It is unclear from the images whether she was alive.

Her family said at the time that they had information that she had been seriously injured but was being treated at a hospital in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas militants have killed at least 1,400 people in their attack on Israeli communities near the Gaza border. They also took at least 229 people hostage, including several Germans.

Dozens of other people are missing, according to the Israeli army.

Shani Louk had German and Israeli nationality. She had never lived in Germany, according to German media, but she regularly visited the country to stay with relatives. His mother Ricarda, originally from southern Germany, had emigrated to Israel after converting from Catholicism to Judaism.

Shani’s grandparents are said to be based in Ravensburg, southern Germany.
