Our association was created by myself and in collaboration with Cédric Vilain. The head office is located in Paris. Cédric Vilain works started on Youtube. Then, after much discussion, we created an association. His name is "History is ridiculous". We deal with some specific things and aspects of history. We desacralize history to try to make it accessible to everyone with a lot of irony.


Our association have for objective to share history and problems who can find. We want a largepublic and share many things about history



The event will focus on Cédric Vilain and his own books really interesting call : Horror Humanum est. Initially, it was a web series on YouTube tracing the worst cruelties of humanity in an entertaining and historical way. It invites a very intense reflection on history. Our event will take place during Human Day 17-18-19th November 2022.

The Event

Salford is a city with a big history. There are several very interesting places and a certain diversity. Our choice will be around the Lowry theater and on Lowry’s theater,Lock 91 and some highschool. We choose this place because it can be really interesting to make a contrast between what we habe on the book and what we show. Human creativity in all art is amazing but we don’t have to forget what creative bad thigs we make on the past. We would like to make presentations at universities in Salford-Manchester. But also, in two general high schools with the support of teachers.

Principal Place

Salford is a city in the North West England region located northwest of Manchester, in the Greater Manchester conurbation. Its population at the 2001 census was 218,000. It has city status. Salford is commonly referred to as "Dirty Old Town" by the English. Some areas, such as Salford Quays and Broughton, are experiencing a revival and are revitalising the city, while others are still among the most violent and socially deprived in England.
