The parliamentarian and former minister, Abdelwahad Radi, has decided to entrust his personal archives, which retrace his entire academic, partisan and national and international political career, to the Archives of Morocco, “in order to participate in the preservation as well as the transmission of our collective history”.
A press release from the institution specifies that the Radi archives represent “an important testimony, from the inside, of the evolutions and complexity of the Moroccan political scene, whether local, regional, national or international”.
The former minister wrote and published his memoirs in Arabic in 2016, translated into French in 2020, in order to bring his testimony and offer his experience to new generations, adds Archives du Maroc.
And to highlight the life of Abdelwahad Radi, born in Salé in 1935 with origins from Gharb, “was very early marked by the seal of political commitment and her militant, professional and political career, translates and expresses the concerns, debates and commitments of this important historical sequence in the history of Morocco”.
Archives du Maroc indicates that an archives handover ceremony between Abdelwahed Radi and the director of the institution, Jamaâ Baida, is scheduled for early June 2023, on the occasion of International Archives Week.
