Nassima Guessoum, Algeria, 2014

Algerian women remember their youth when they joined the rebels during the Algerian war.

In Algeria I meet Nassima Hablal, a forgotten heroine of the Revolution. She was the secretary of the political head of the FLN, National Front of Liberation. Like a grandmother with her granddaughter, the old charming lady, tells me her story of a woman in the war, her fight for an independent Algeria. Every year I come back to visit her.
