Following the Arab Language Competition
In the July issue of the Review we recalled that the International Committee, in co-operation with the League, had organised an Arab language competition and we gave the results. This competition, which took place under the auspices of the ICRC radio broadcasts, was a great success. The first prizewinner (who comes from Jerusalem, Jordan) chose as his subject “The Red Cross as an important factor in closer relations between people”, and we think it will be of interest to publish extracts of his essay, which has been translated by the ICRC. This is followed by part of the essay by the 3rd prize-wiitner (from Gaza, U.A.R.), who chose to write on “Experiences or stories connected with the idea of the Red Crescent and the Red Cross”, and did so in the simple and moving manner which this theme required.
