“HUMANIZE THE CONFLICT”: ALGERIAN HEALTH CARE ORGANIZATIONS AND PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGNS, 1954–62

  • Jennifer Johnson Onyedum

Abstract

This article explores the vitally important yet often neglected role of medicine and health care in the conduct of the Algerian War of Independence (1954–62). Using French, Swiss, and recently opened Algerian archival materials, it demonstrates how Algerian nationalists developed a health-service infrastructure that targeted the domestic and international arenas. It argues that they employed the powerful language of health and healing to legitimize their claims for national sovereignty and used medical organizations to win local support, obtain financial and material aid from abroad, and recast themselves as humanitarians to an increasingly sympathetic international audience. This research aims to situate Algerian efforts into a broader history of decolonization and humanitarianism and contributes to rethinking the process through which political claims were made at the end of empire.

NOTES

Author's note: I thank Frederick Cooper, James McDougall, Philip Nord, and Helen Tilley for encouraging me to pursue this project and for commenting on earlier versions of the work. I am grateful for generous grants from the Princeton University History Department, the Princeton University Center for Health and Wellbeing, and the American Institute for Maghrib Studies that made this research possible. I am indebted to my interviewees for sharing their stories and to Clifford Rosenberg and Muriam Haleh Davis for reading earlier drafts. My argument was strengthened by presentations at the Middle East Studies Association annual meeting, the American Institutue for Maghrib Studies Public Health Conference, Columbia University's Seminar on Contemporary Africa, and the helpful comments of four anonymous IJMES reviewers and the editors.

3 Important scholarship analyzing the international diplomatic dimensions of the Algerian conflict includes Connelly, Matthew, A Diplomatic Revolution: Algeria's Fight for Independence and the Origins of the Post-Cold War Era (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002); Elsenhans, Hartmut, La guerre d'Algérie 1954–62: La transition d'une France à une autre, le passage de la IVème à la Vème République (Paris: Éditions Publisud, 1999); Westad, Odd Arne, The Global Cold War: Third World Interventions and the Making of Our Times (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2007); and Byrne, Jeffrey James, Pilot Nation: Revolutionary Algeria in the Third World's Vanguard (Oxford: Oxford University Press, forthcoming). Algerian literature on the war tends to stress the significance of the international arena to the nationalists’ political strategy. See, for example, Harbi, Mohammed, Aux origines du FLN (Paris: Christian Bourgois, 1975); idem, Le FLN: Mirage et réalite (Paris: Éditions Jeune Afrique, 1980); idem, Les archives de la révolution algérienne (Paris: Éditions Jeune Afrique, 1981); idem and Meynier, Gilbert, Le FLN, documents en histoire, 1954–1962 (Paris: Fayard, 2004); Haroun, Ali, La 7ème wilaya. La guerre du FLN en France, 1954–1962 (Paris: Seuil, 1986); and Meynier, Gilbert, Histoire intérieure du FLN, 1954–1962 (Algiers: Éditions Casbah, 2003). For recent French scholarship emphasizing the significance of military and judiciary abuses, see Branche, Raphaëlle, La torture et l'armée pendant la guerre d'Algérie (Paris: Gallimard, 2001) and Thénault, Sylvie, Une drôle de justice: Magistrats dans la guerre d'Algérie (Paris: Éditions La Decouverte, 2001).

4 The global context of the war remains crucial to understanding how the FLN diplomatically defeated the French and forced them to leave in 1962. Matthew Connelly's work has shown the strategic significance of the Cold War to the Algerian war, including in the domain of public health. Connelly, Matthew, “The Cold War in the Longue Durée: Global Migration, Public Health, and Population Control,” Cambridge History of the Cold War; Endings, ed. Leffler, Melvyn P. and Westad, Odd Arne (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2010), 466–88. This article addresses the internationalization of the Algerian war through health care, but the full role of the Cold War is beyond its scope.

5 The internal leadership, which included influential figures such as Abane Ramdane (ʿAban Ramadan) and Amar Ouamrane (ʿAmmar ʿUmran), focused its efforts on military action within Algeria. Ahmed Ben Bella and Hocine Aït Ahmed (Husayn Ait Ahmad) headed the external leadership from Cairo and concentrated on international political outreach.

21 SHAT/1H 1681/2, FLN Service de Santé and SHAT/2582/1, Armée de Libération National contain letters and reports seized by the French military during tactical operations and from the bodies of dead Algerian combatants that indicate a level of precision in reporting the number of sick and wounded. ALN service directives dictated rudimentary skills it expected medical personnel to perform and issued instructions for how this information was to be sent from sectors, regions, and zones. Apart from these two files and statements in some Algerian memoirs that such a medical hierarchy existed, there is little evidence to suggest that the FLN–ALN medical division was able to operate this efficiently.

50 These news sources repeatedly published articles about CRF visits to French military and civilian hospitals. Often CRF nurses would pose alongside injured French soldiers, and the caption would describe the rejuvenating nature of their visits. Around Christmas, the CRF made an extra effort to visit hospitals around the country and hand out gifts to the French soldiers.

74 Henry Alleg's 1958 publication of La question provided concrete evidence of French torture. Other personal accounts and observations of torture and general prison experiences in Algeria were published often in Le Monde and Libération from 1958 to 1960. One example is Dénis Berger's retelling of an encounter he had with an Algerian while detained. The Algerian prisoner told him he had been tortured with electricity, and Berger says he saw the long, thin scars covering the man's body. “Un nouveau témoignage sur ‘La Gangrène,’” Le Monde, 12 December 1959. For other accounts of torture, see Belkhodja, Amar, L'affaire Hamdani Adda (Tiaret, Algeria: Éditions Mekkloufi, n.d.); Branche, La torture et l'armée pendant la guerre d'Algérie; Einaudi, Jean-Luc, La ferme Améziane.
