    DescriptionAt the time of his arrest, Slimane Asselah left only a rectangular brown suitcase behind. Inside was a gray-checked suit, two hairbrushes, various paperwork and an identity photo showing his pensive face.

    For decades, these few belongings offered Asselah’s children, Rachid and Samia, a rare glimpse into their father’s life. The twins were just shy of 2 years old in 1957 when French troops seized Asselah, then 33, at the doctor’s office where he worked in the casbah of Algiers. He never returned home.

    In the years that followed, his family appealed for information about his whereabouts, but to no avail. More recently, a historian uncovered in France a decades-old investigation into his case, but it did not reveal his fate.
