The Horst Frenz Prize Citations 2018

In this, the 25th anniversary of the Horst Frenz Prize, the judges have decided to award two prizes: one, to Brahim El Guabli, for his unsettling but constructive essay,"Remembering the Algerian War: Towards Complementarity of Memories” which argues that we should not depend solely on French accounts of that War, since it is a historical embarrassment for the French.

By exploring reports of the War in Arabic and other languages of the Mahgrib, El Guabli offers a more balanced account of Algeria’s fight for independence, a “complementarity of memories”.
