    AUC Tahrir Square

    Relive one of the most influential events in history at Egypt’s 1919 Revolution Commemoration on AUC’s iconic Tahrir Square campus. Most Egyptian intellectuals regard the 1919 revolution – which made a national hero out of Saad Zaghlul and led to Great Britain's later recognition of Egyptian independence – as the most truly nationwide uprising of 20th century Egypt. The commemoration will take place in March 2019, the date that the revolution began a century prior.
