This chapter discusses René Guénoun's and his former wife's beliefs in Communism as well as their involvement with the Algerian Communist Party. During the adolescent years of the author, his father taught him details about the organizations' cells, sections, departments as well as their corresponding secretaries. It was during those moments that the author discovered that his father was part of the base section of the organization, in which he was never promoted further. The author also describes how his mother supported his father's opinions in politics by becoming a union member for the party. The author's mother considered her husband's belief in Communism as her principled tolerance.

Keywords:   René Guénoun, Algerian Communist Party, Algeria, Communism
