  • So important to keep the memory, build the history and remember what happened!

    Thank you to these people for their testimony. Thank you for this documentary, very instructive but above all sad, screaming with injustice, anger, and hatred.

    Indeed, the desire to alienate the other, to make his culture disappear, is transcribed.

    Rape is also a form of alienating the other, attacking his mind and body.

    I hope that one day the cemeteries will be found to help the families mourn and restore the duty of memory.

    Good evening 🤗
