On April 7th, 2021 Georges Mayer, president of Convoi 77, participated by video link from Israel in an event at the French high school Guy-de-Maupassant, formerly known as the International School of Casablanca (EIC), in Morocco.
A presentation of the association was made during this event organized by the school and Ms Muriel Baggio, director of the National Office for Veterans and War Victims. The school director, Mr Pascal Roques, the teachers Mrs Zriwill and Mrs Benkirane and the students were able to engage in a conversation with Georges Mayer about the project.
Since the start of 2021, the school’s students have been working on the biography of Yaich Timsit, born in Essaouira and deported in convoy 77.
The event took place as the general Consul of France to Casablanca, Serge Mucetti, came to unveil an exhibition at the school and entitled “The signs of resistance and collaboration”.
Two other projects linked to Convoi 77 are ongoing in Morocco. One of them is led by the École Normale Hébraïque, the other by Lyautey High School, both based in Casablanca.
