    Shameful and Ungrateful; this is how they describe the rudeness actions on the part of Haitians to remove Juan Bosch name from the Auditorium of University during the eve of the opening ceremonies



    “. . . butchery was carried out by troops of the Haitian general Henri Christophe (the now named complex), who was led by Jean Jacques Dessalines . . . “


    Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic - Historians rated the actions of a group of Haitians who took the name and photo of Professor Juan Bosch of the Auditorium of the University donated by Dominican Republic and Haiti to be an ingratitude and indelicacy.

    This destruction took place the same day of the inauguration of the House of high learning. The Dominican Government incurred a cost of $50 million dollars for the building of the complex.
    The removal of the photo and the name of the former President and founder of the Dominican Liberation Party (PLD), Juan Bosch, in an auditorium of the University Henri Christophe donated by the Dominican Government to the neighboring nation provoked immediate reactions from political scientists and historians.
    The dissent was performed by a group of Haitians headed by a Senator from the neighboring nation.
    Experts also rejected a part of the speech of the Mayor of Limonade, Jean Delavois, attributed to Juan Pablo Duarte, the phrase "the island is one and indivisible". They adamantly recount that the founding father of the neighboring nation never uttered such a frase. Also in Dominican history, butchery was carried out by troops of the Haitian general Henri Christophe (the now named complex), who was led by Jean Jacques Dessalines, when retreating from the Spanish part of the island during their attempted invasion of that year of 1805. This indifferent aspect makes one ponder the unappreciative facet in the matter of the naming.
    Historians specified that the name of Henri Christophe to the University was chosen by the Haitian Government.
    These two incidents did not disillusion the emotional framework of the ceremony in the University.
