Hunting down the Nazis Visual 1 edition published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Part I tells of the search for Nazi officials and concentration camp officials and guards immediately after the end of World War II.
Tells of the arrest and subsequent trials of major Nazi officials and their subordinates. From the viewpoint of Algerian nationalists, all Harkis were traitors; but at independence, the signatories of the March cease-fire " Accords d'Evian " signed by France and the Algerian FLN , guaranteed that no one, Harkis or Pieds-Noirs Algerian-born Europeans with French nationality , would suffer reprisals after independence for any action during the war.
In the French government of Charles de Gaulle originally ordered officials and army officers to prevent the Harkis from following the Pieds-Noirs and seeking refuge in metropolitan France. Some officers of the French army disobeyed and tried to assist the Harkis under their command - as well as their families - to escape from Algeria. About 90, Harkis including family members found refuge in France. On the other hand, the OAS far-right terrorist group initiated a campaign of bombings in Algeria following the Evian Accords to block the Pieds-Noirs population from leaving the country.
As feared, widespread reprisals took place against those Harkis who remained in Algeria. Hundreds died when put to work clearing the minefields along the Morice Line , or were shot out of hand. Others were tortured atrociously; army veterans were made to dig their own tombs, then swallow their decorations before being killed; they were burned alive, or castrated, or dragged behind trucks, or cut to pieces and their flesh fed to dogs. Many were put to death with their entire families, including young children. Regular Algerian Muslim troops who were offered the option of continuing to serve in the French Army were only occasionally subject to reprisals.
Some leaders of the new Algerian Republic were veterans of the French Army, which prior to independence had provided one of the few avenues for advancement open to the Muslim majority in colonial society.
By there were about Algerian Muslim officers in the French Army, although only one had achieved promotion to the rank of general. The French government, concerned mainly with disengagement from Algeria and the repatriation of the Pieds-Noirs , disregarded or downplayed news of the massacres of Harkis.
Charles de Gaulle appears to have been indifferent to the plight of the Muslim loyalists according to Horne, who reported that the president remarked to one of their spokesmen "Eh bien! The French government did not plan for the Harkis after independence, and for some years it did not recognize any right for them to stay in France as residents and citizens. The Harkis were kept in "temporary" internment camps surrounded by barbed wire, such as the Camp de Rivesaltes Joffre Camp in Rivesaltes outside of Perpignan and in "chantiers de forestage" — communities of 30 Harki families on the outskirts of forests which the men maintained.
The French government has since enacted various measures to help the Harki community notably the Romani law and the Mekachera law ; although in the views of community leaders these laws are often too little, too late. The government of Jacques Chirac subsequently acknowledged these former allies, holding public ceremonies to commemorate their sacrifices, such as the 25 September Day of National Recognition for the Harkis.
For its part, the Algerian government does not recognize the Harkis as French citizens.
It does not permit them to enter Algeria to visit their birth-places or family members left behind in that country. Since Algerian independence, "Harki" has been used as a derogatory expression within Algeria.
Algerian historian Mohammed Harbi , a former FLN member, believes that comparison between Harkis and traitors or "collaborators" is not pertinent.
