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.
Hibakusha To be called Hibakusha means A survivor To be called a Hibakusha is A big honor, surviving this Tragedy and an honor remembering that moment Rebuilding the country the way it used to be And rebuilding the heritage and playing roles Of all the people that passed away People called Hibakusha Should be thankful To be called that, And able to continue Their lives after The miserable tragedy That took place in our lives.
