Peuple En Marche 1963: People on the Move

Loading...
"In 1962, René Vautier, together with some Algerian friends, organized an audiovisual formation center to encourage a "dialogue in images" between the two factions. A film was edited from that experience, but the French police partially destroyed it. The images that were saved represent an unprecedented historical document: They tell of the Algerian War and the history of the ALN (National Liberation Army), as well as showing life after the war and, particularly, the reconstruction of the cities and the countryside after the war of Independence". -- Wikipedia.

Soldiers Fight in Algerian War of Independence ca. 1954

A French colony since 1847, Algeria stepped up efforts to gain independence as soon as World War II was over. On November 1, 1954, Algerian rebels belonging to the National Liberation Front (FLN) converged on French military posts and government buildings, provoking an eight-year war that left more than 1 million people dead. The war ended with the Treaty of Evian, which granted Algeria its autonomy.
