Hacène "la torture" Mahyouze

Post by DavidFrankenberg » 18 May 2018 22:28

Hi,

i am interested in the fate of a certain "Hacène Mahyouze" or "Hacene Mahyouze" or "Hassan Mahyouze".

He was an Algerian muslim.

It is said that he served as a SS volunteer during WWII where he learnt the science of torture.
After the war he joined the algerian nationalist party FLN. During the Algerian War (1954-1962) he was famous under the name of "Hacène la torture" > "Hacene the torture".
He tortured and killed thousands of people, most of them innocents, many of them were algerian nationalists suspected of treason.
He survived the war and an academy was named in his honor.

Does anyone has more infos about him ? Where did he serve during WWII ?

Thanks

Hi,
He was officer in the Algerian Liberation Army, second to Amirouche who was a leader in Kabylian Mountains. Some officers had veen in the German Army during the war, the most famous of them being Mohamedi Said, who was very proud of his German helmet. As an Algerian said : "some choose the German as they were fighting French colonialists, others choose the French Army withe the hope of a vetter treatment after the war. They hust got some thousands killed ont the 8 May 1945....
Mohamedi Said is said to have fought in Greece, Yougoslavia and USSR before being sent to Algeria withe some others to create a "maquis", bit th Ljftwaffe pilot did let them too far from the DZ, so they were arrested.
