D’où je parle

Je suis algérienne, j’ai vécu en Algérie depuis ma naissance, j’y ai passé tout le temps de la guerre d’indépendance (1954-62) et jusqu’à la fin des années 80 – date à partir de laquelle les ravages de l’intégrisme armé se sont violemment faits sentir  : l’intégrisme armé a fait environ 200 000 victimes au cours de la décennie 90.

صور من حياتنا

أيقظني صوت رنين هاتفي الخليوي في وقت مبكر جدا من الصباح، أمسكت بالجهاز وقد أقلقتني جدا المكالمة في هذا الوقت، فغالبا ما تأتي الأخبار السيئة بهذا الشكل.
- ألو، نعم. من؟.
- مدام، قلت لك مرارا أن لا تتدخلي بشؤون لا تخصك، أنت لا تستطيعين تغيير هؤلاء الساقطات.
سباب وشتائم. عرفت من خلال حديثه هوية محدثي الصباحي، كان الضابط المسؤول في مخفر شرطة الشاليهات، في الشاطئ الأزرق. حيث سارت معظم العائلات النازحة من حلب وادلب والرقة باتجاه اللاذقية، نتيجة للدمار الذي سببته الحرب السورية. كون اللاذقية كانت أكثر أمانا.
