Exactly 61 years ago today, September 30, a young Algerian law student named Zohra Drif placed a bomb in the popular Milk Bar café in one of the pivotal events of Algeria's national liberation war against French colonialism. I was lucky to spend a few weeks with her earlier this month in the US, promoting my English translation of her memoir, Inside the Battle of Algiers: Memoir of a Woman Freedom Fighter, which was released worldwide this month by @justworldbooks.
