AbstractOn the sidelines of the ceremony commemorating the end of World War II, and the victory of Europe over Nazism, the program "My country" devoted an episode to the Moroccan soldiers, called ALCOM. There were some 85,000 soldiers who took sides with France and the allies during the Second World War. The program visits "Des Passons" cemetry in Aubagne, where soldiers killed during the war were buried, among them Moroccans. The speaker and his guest Hamid Marhalet, President of the National Federation of Veteran soldiers, present the history of ALCOM and the battles fought over the European territories. Along the streets of Marseille, the program notes the current financial conditions of the surviving soldiers and the late rise in their wages.
