President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune received explanations by the Adviser to the Presidency of the Republic, in charge of the National Archives and National Memory, Abdelmadjid Chikhi on the occasion of the inauguration of an artistic mural in Boudjemaa Hamar martyr’s Square commemorating the Algerians who were exiled by the French colonization, reflecting the memorable history in the life of the Algerian nation.
“The story of Algerians exiled to the far reaches of the planet is one of the finest stories that can fuel the national spirit and ignite noble feelings”, he said.
He added that the memorial, which “is characterized by simplicity with eloquent and authentic message, tells the story of a crowd of Algerian heroes being driven to the ship under the executioner’s whip pushing them to board, standing on the right side, a man with all hallmarks of authenticity and courage raises his hand and looking forward to the future with the firm conviction that sacrifice must be made. While on the left side stands a boy with a bent flag hoping one day he will grow up and raise the flag high flying.”
Abdelmadjid Chikhi considers exiled persons sorrows and their misery is the eloquent lesson that successive generations must draw, calling them to roll up their sleeves and start in the creative work to be best successors to best predecessors so as not to waste the love of the homeland and the flame that illuminates their way.
