Re: INVITATION: Virtual screening of two rare historic archival films produced by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

I've made the payment to JDC but haven't figured out how to register for viewing these 2 films.
Please let me know how to register and when the films are going to be screened.

REQUEST FOR HELP: Nazi seal and inscription on armchair ; meaning and origins ?

Hello,

I'm searching for the meaning of an abbreviation reading "Ich.Pol." engraved on the foot of an armchair given to my great-grandfather in Paris after the war, as compensation for looted furniture in his lawyer office during the Occupation (Paris, 16th arrondissement).
Also featured in the engravement : a svastika + IIIrd Reich eagle.
Photo can be sent in a separate email.

Thank you for your help

L’histoire officielle d’Haïti fait trop de cadeaux à Christophe Colomb. Ce sociologue propose une relecture

La décolonisation est un impératif, selon le sociologue Jean Casimir

Hier, 18 novembre 2020 marquait les 217 ans de la bataille de Vertières. C’est l’étape finale dans la lutte menant à la révolution haïtienne de 1804. Cette révolution offre une clé pour la compréhension géopolitique de l’Amérique latine ; de la genèse de ses États-nations à son incommensurable actualité.
