    This exhibition presents reproductions of paintings by the painter Serge Vollin, accompanied by testimonies of harkis collected by the historian Fatima Besnaci-Lancou. A bit of history: As soon as the Evian Accords were signed on March 18, 1962, providing, among other things, for the imminent independence of Algeria, more than half a million French people of European stock took the road to exile. From July 3, 1962, to flee the violence against them, families of harkis, French of Arab-Berber origin, in turn left their native country. To better understand their journey, the Camp de Rivesaltes Memorial wanted to carry out this regional project, in partnership with several territories of the Occitanie Region and the Pyrénées-Orientales Department which share this painful history. This exhibition follows the temporary exhibition Treize chibanis harkis, presented at the Memorial from June 30, 2020 to August 15, 2021.
