AYA De Yopougon

Seventies in Africa have constituted a major transitional period, both in terms of mentalities, as a large part of the world, and political issues after the decolonization, this movie explores the issues of this decade. Aya de Yopougon makes us discover life in a neighborhood of Abidjan through three friends entering adult life and facing conservative mentalities about the women's place in society.

The Women of the Resistance

The French Resistance is too often described in masculine terms. However, women played an important and neglected role. This new cycle of Parlons Histoire entitled "Les grandes figures féminines de la Résistance", pays tribute to these unsung heroines. Aubrac, De Gaulle-Anthonioz, Albrecht, Tillion and Fourcade are among them! Each month, we invite you to discover the exciting and tragic lives of these Braves among the Brave, who command respect and admiration...

*** NOVEMBER SESSION *** 

NOVEMBER 9 : Lucie AUBRAC (1912-2007) 

Born in 1912, Lucie, a rebellious woman with a strong character, quickly became aware of the rise of European fascism. History graduate, she joined the Communist Youth and married the French officer Raymond Aubrac. The war broke out. It was the beginning of a story whose ramifications she could not yet imagine: clandestinity, arrests, escapes, torture... and Victory! Icon of the Resistance, she died in 2007. President Jacques Chirac declared: "All her life, she knew how to keep in our hearts the flame of the Republic struggles for Freedom".
