Yahia Yaïch is a man in power who is deposed and put under house arrest. He shuts himself in his library, which mysteriously catches fire. An attack? A suicide attempt? An attempt to get rid of incriminating documents? Amnesia is very much like a crime novel with unexpected twists and false leads. It takes us into an authoritarian world with a poor memory. What then do we remember of history? Who must be held accountable? This recent work by Fadhel Jaïbi questions individual freedom in confrontation with collective forces, a questioning which may be as old as the hills – as in many a Greek tragedy – but is still valid today.
