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.
We say, "feel sorry!" They say, "it was necessary!" A survivor says, "whatever. I just wanted to live an ordinary life." A victim would say, "whatever. I just wanted to live a longer life."
