Dear Members and Friends of the MHA,
We are delighted to announce our upcoming presentation for the month of May. We really hope you can join us. The presentation will be held on Zoom on Tuesday 17th of May 2022 at the time of 6:50pm. Please note the earlier then usual start time. The Zoom link will be provided on the email.
Joe Scicluna is a Maltese ex-pat living in France. Like all of us, he is passionate about the history of the Maltese people. In our next presentation he will talk to us about three eyewitness accounts written by Frenchmen during Malta’s tumultuous French period, which he translated into English. These books give a different perspective to what many Maltese believe to be their true history based on a narrative passed on to us throughout the centuries. Two of the eyewitnesses had lived in Malta for several decades and understood Maltese society very well. The third eyewitness is none other than Napoleon himself who spent a mere two weeks on Malta. Joe will also talk about his own historical novel, “The Malta Soldier” which is based on dramatic events that took place during the first years of Malta’s British rule.
