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.
Listen to Radio IFLAC:
(September 21, 2015) To celebrate the International Day of Peace 2015, Ada Aharoni read peace poems from her poetry collection Rare Flower on IFLAC Radio and talked with radio host Motti Gerner about peace and her work.
(March 22, 2015) In this video interview with IFLAC Radio’s Motti Gerner, Ada Aharoni talks about her two recent books in Hebrew, the poetry collection Harimon (The Pomegranate) and Not in Vain, the story of Thea Wolf, the head nurse at the Jewish Hospital in Alexandria who during the Second World War helped save European Jews. She also talks about the outcome of the Israeli elections and about the open letter IFLAC wrote to Palestinian President Abbas, appealing to him to have Hamas change their Charter. The next open letter from IFLAC will be to the leader of the Israeli Arabs, who according to Aharoni can serve as a bridge between Israel and the Palestinians.
