Artist's Description

This is a memorial building constructed to honor the local men who died fighting for Algeria’s independence in the 60s. At that time, the French Occupation called those fighting for their freedom “terrorists”. It was one of modern history’s first use of this term. It was an 8 year war.

The effects of the war left long-standing scars both on the French and Algeria. It wasn’t until 1999 that the French recognized a ‘war’ had taken place, 37 years after it’s end.

When traveling through Algeria, here and there you’ll find reminders of the still-recent tragedy. In some villages, every man able to fight lost their life, wiping out whole generations.

This small building, nestled in mountains of rock and gravel on the edge of the Sahara Desert, is a whispered reminder of Algeria’s history and the sacrafice made to get their country back and regain their own culture.
