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.
1946 horror had begun Many people died There were no knives, no guns Few had survived People have lost family Many people were hurt A lot of people are still sad Some are so poor, they don't have a shirt September 21st Day of peace Love ones rest in peace
