An anthology of the winners, runners-up and highly commended entries. With various contributors and an introduction by Ibrahim Sincere.
Whether to memorialise, to inspire a prayer or to learn from, analyse and study, this volume brings much to reflect on, and despite its topic, a glimmer of hope that with increased understanding comes the chance of a better future. This is of interest to those who need a teaching resource on this topic, as well as those who appreciate poetry.
This anthology brings all the entries from winners, runners-up and those highly commended from 2012 - 2019 Genocide Memorial Day poetry competition in one volume. Since its first establishment in 2010, GMD events have taken place across the world, established by different organisations working on their own or as part of both the Universal Justice Network (UJN) and the Decolonial International Network (DIN). Events have taken place in Jerusalem, The Hague, Paris, Brussels, Kuala Lumpur and many other places.
In the UK, running alongside the event itself and the website which provides resources for schools, teachers and activists on the various themes, has been the poetry competition for young people.
