The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.
Below is one of the contest entries.
The Dark Days No light, just the dark of the night was all they saw. Bombs crashing everywhere, people dying; seeing all this breaks my heart and Japan's apart. First Hiroshima, then Nagasaki.
— Erica Lliguichuzhca
