TISSEMSILT – The painter Mohamed Titaoui, a native of the city of Bordj Emir Abdelkader (Tissemsilt) has excelled in the realization of a giant mural on the massacres of May 8, 1945, inaugurated Wednesday in this city on the occasion of commemoration of the 74th anniversary of these massacres.
The artist has succeeded, through this fresco made at the level of the outdoor courtyard of the youth center, to highlight the burst of the Algerian people on May 8, 1945, which was repressed by the French occupation massacring more than 45,000 unarmed civilians.
This fresco, which caught the attention of the public and whose inauguration was presided over by the Governor of Tissemsilt, Salah El Affani, represents a mujahid with the weapon in his hand and behind him the national flag.
The artist has tried to convey to the current generation the message that these massacres led to the outbreak of the glorious War of National Liberation crowned by the Independence of the country.
The commemoration of the 74th anniversary of the massacres of May 8, 1945, which took place in the commune of Bordj Emir Abdelkader, was marked by a ceremony in honor of the revolutionary family of the region, exhibitions of photos, crafts and painting, a parade of Algerian Muslim scouts and a reception honoring the winners of the sports tournaments organized on the occasion.
