IFLAC now has its own radio: Radio IFLAC. “I hope that the goals of IFLAC will spread even more through our new IFLAC Internet radio,” says Motti Gerner, Director of Radio IFLAC.
The first – and very captivating – radio interview is with Ada Aharoni, the Founding President of IFLAC. She talks about the various IFLAC projects, like the children’s Peace Train, children’s Peace Poetry Contest, peace poetry readings, storytelling and her research on the uprooting of Jews from Arab countries. Ada herself was born in Egypt. Her father, Jewish and French national, had his business permit withdrawn, and the family went to live in France in 1949. The following year, Ada came to Israel, at the age of 16.
Besides interviews with authors and poets of peace poetry and peace novels, we plan to have poetry readings in English, French, Hebrew, Spanish and Arabic.
We will also follow and promote our IFLAC International Peace Poetry Contest for Children in 2012. The 2011 Contest was a success, with moving and wise words from young poets.
If you would like to contribute to Radio IFLAC with your peace poems or otherwise, please contact Motti Gerner.
