BOOK Madagascar, 1947
A committed and moving testimony about the insurrection of 1947 in Madagascar, by Raharimanana, along with photos from the Charles Ravoajanahary fund. In French & Malagasy.
The author and playwright Raharimanana speaks with force and precision of colonial relations between France and Madagascar from the nineteenth century to 1947, the year of the Malagasy uprising against the colonial oppression, repressed in blood by the French authorities. Raharimanana gathers written testimony, but also photos of the Charles Ravoajanahary fund, to discuss what historians from the North have preferred to forget. He gives voice to those who have been silenced, in order to redefine relationships between developed countries and the South.
