In the memory of the eleven female teachers, who were murdered in Sidi Bel Abbes on the 27th of September 1997

In the memory of those who left, because of shootings and screaming.
We will not forget you!

Memory and amnesia
They will have a knock-on- effect.
Their story has already become a film, a poster, a picture
I never forgot
They have already drawn a black and red zone
Besides, such a bloodstained zone could never be white
Our battle continues
One day, the history will overtake us, the scenes and screams from the past
Today, it is the wounds, the injuries that were never healed
Sealed with a double-sided iron forged piece of immunity and impunity
They want our sufferings and oblivion to be locked and fade away
Those that today have been categorized and reconstructed according to the materializes needs and demands
Once, it was forbidden to be buried or they were buried in secret
A screaming call of justice in territories and in cemeteries
Dead and buried on different dates
To all those mothers hidden behind a son, who is searching for the souls, their lost souls
Alive men and women who are searching for our lost, our dead and our truth
In fact, those are our dead, our lost and our truth. Those who were looking for us.

In the memory of the eleven female teachers, who were murdered in Sidi Bel Abbes on the 27th of September 1997.
We welcome and greet the struggles of working women in Algeria and we never forget “the eleven women-teachers who were murdered in Sidi Bel Abbes, on the 27th of September 1997, those who were spreading to future generations the knowledge for an Algeria bright, modern and progressive”.
