Sample text

When Massu was recalled to Paris in January  for attacking self-determination, pied-noir extremists launched a general strike in Algiers in what became known as ‘the week of the barricades’. De Gaulle appeared on television in military uniform to recall the rebels to order. With a freer hand he pressed on with his policy, calling upon the ‘liberating genius of France’, which in  was in the process of emancipating its sub-Saharan colonies, and obtained  per cent support for the principle of selfdetermination in a referendum of January .

For some the French failed to see that liberation might also mean the rejection of French definitions of liberty and civilization in favour of others and resorted to methods of barbarism that allowed them, the people of , to be attacked for being no better than Nazis. Others continued to believe that they had fought in good faith for the values of civilization and that terrorism had to be met by legitimate force. On trial in  for crimes against humanity, Maurice Papon was also confronted by claims that he was responsible for the killing of demonstrating Algerians in Paris on  October .

Unfortunately, the debate was in no sense rational, and opponents of the EDC were able to prey on painful memories of the German occupation and of Nazi atrocities, revived once again in  in the Oradour trial. They argued that the EDC would not control German rearmament but actually resurrect the Wehrmacht, and that the Wehrmacht, as in the Bismarck era, would forge a united German Reich.
