Tribune of historians for the defense of their freedom of creation and analysis and against the Memorial Laws

Historians denounce the fact that the French state legislates on the past and mobilizes against memorial laws. The debate on legislation on history was revived more than 3 years ago when the law imposed a positive historical reading of French colonization. The book by Pierre Nora and Françoise Chandernagor "Freedom for History" revives the controversy. Is it up to the law to write history or to historians to embody our memory? According to historians, this calls into question their profession and their freedom of creation, it is unacceptable to be judged on the use of certain words and values. Interview with Marc FERRO, historian, Pierre NORA, historian, and Georges PAU-LANGEVIN, MP PS, Paris XXth.
