Remembrance Day

Today is a Remembrance Day in Libya in honor of the thousands of Libyans deported to Italian dreary islands during the Fascist era for their role in the Resistance at the time. As Grazziani, the Italian well-known General of the time, said that he had only three options for Libyans not accepting Rome’s supremacy, and these are; the gallows, the concentration camps or the boat for the islands. Thousands were deported and most of them perished away from home in a hostile land, the remainders who came back bore scars of sufferance for the rest of their lives.
Meantime, Benghazi had its own sad gloomy day, as the worst sand storm of the season raged in the area, leaving the streets empty and dusted.

I can imagine how it looks in benghazi from the pics, it's the sad windy gibli of benghzi, it couldn't be worse, and the day holds alot of sufferness of libyans in the past, may be there is a connection or it's just the usual weatehr of benghazi!!

Thanks Highlander for stopping by, and you're welcome. BC, sory about your AC, and regarding that the world is not making much attention about this subject, I always believed that the other subject of the concentration camps is a much serious matter, but it seems that right lies only withen might.

الصور توقعتها لإحدى الول المطلة على المحيط
فالرياح قوية و الأمواج عالية
لكن أن تكون في بنغازي؟؟؟؟؟؟
استغرب لهذا الأمر
كيف سيكون الحال في منتصف فصل الشتاء؟؟؟
