After Editions de Minuit , a French publishing house, released his memoir La Question in , Alleg gained international recognition for his stance against torture , specifically within the context of the Algerian War — Alleg went on his own for Algeria in , and then as an year-old became intimately involved with the Algerian Communist Party. In , Alleg became director of the publication, which alone in Algeria advocated a free democratic press for Algerian grievances against France. The newspaper was banned in September by the French authorities due to its communist and anti-colonial perspective. Many of his articles never saw publication due to government censorship of writing that advocated Algerian independence. On 12 June Alleg was arrested on suspicion of undermining the power of the state by France's 10th Paratrooper Division in the home of his friend, mathematics professor Maurice Audin , who was arrested the day before and would later die under questionable circumstances while imprisoned. Alleg underwent one month of torture in El-Biar , a suburb of Algiers , despite the fact that no charges had been laid against him.
It is famous for precisely describing the methods of torture used by French paratroopers during the Algerian War from the point of view of a victim. La Question was censored in France after selling 60, copies in two weeks. The resulting interrogation aimed at identifying the people who had supported him, and whom Alleg was determined to protect. He wrote the autobiographical account in the Barberousse prison of Algiers. He managed to smuggle out the pages with the help of his lawyers.
