On this day against the forgetting of victims of terrorism, I would like to launch the hashtag #Mansinach so that each of us can tell about his personal experiences so that no one will forget and so that those who have not experienced them become aware of them.

And the word was released. Sharp, moving memories flooded in. Writer Kaouther Adimi narrates, with inspired literary verve, an episode that marked her during a fake checkpoint (a road checkpoint held by terrorists instead of law enforcement). A thread to be read in its entirety.
Summer 95. We take the eastern road in the old car. The three children in the back, the baby on my mother’s lap in front (We could do that at the time). It’s summer and we have a 7 or 8 hour drive. It is 1995 and all those who were in Algeria know. #Mansinach

Journalist Akram Kharief, specializing in security and military information, talks about his personal memories and also lays the foundations for this summons to be forgotten. Posts to read in their entirety, too.
You should realize that the#Algeria is a country under PTSD and one that we have never exorcised our terrors and demons, we were forced to forget as we sought to understand to receive apologies and maybe forgive #Mansinach

The small stories join the big ones, with a capital letter. Saying the unspeakable, sharing the intimate and discovering that we are not alone in this ocean of silent pain. Silent, they were. Tues would be fairer. The time of mourning, of acceptance. Time to say.
I was an intern in legal medicine
There was a couple lying down, the beheaded boy
the disembowelled girl …
The boy’s head buried in his girlfriend’s belly.
My mother coming home from work, false roadblock, the driver shot in front of her, when she chahed, gun to the temple there is a shooting … intervention of the army after that, she did not come out of his room for more than a month, at the time we did not understand .. #Mansinach

The silence turned into a torrent of testimonies. Saying, saying, saying … Words about ailments, verbs to ward off oblivion, sentences to express what has been ostracized for a long time. Tear the veil …
Launched yesterday so as not to forget, the # overflows. Of a river which leaves its bed of silence, one cannot stop the flow. Let the word carry #Mansinach

– One day at my aunt’s house in Belouizdad, the neighbors told that they lost all the members of their family in Rais, and the only survivor was the little Islam, he was one year old and had lost consciousness during the carnage, the terrorists thought that he was dead. #Mansinach

My older brother’s French teacher received death threats if she did not wear the veil, one day a man shows up at school as his cousin, he arrives to his class calls him, she goes out, he make sure it’s her and perform it in front of her students #Mansinach
