Visit of the Angels of Peace to Germany
By Ann Kosco Schaffner, WFWP Germany
From May 6th. to 7th. the German Women’s Federation for Peace held a Women’s Festival in the “Neumühle”, Bad Camberg. This time the Russian children’s ensemble “Angles of Peace” was invited to perform at this event.
One day before on May 5th the children could have a special peace and friendship program at one German school, in the Frankfurt area. German and Russian children could get to know one another and play Russian and German games together. It became a real Children’s Bridge of Peace. The
Angels of Peace gave a concert for children, who came from many classes of this school. The German children really enjoyed the concert and clapped very loudly. They didn’t want the performance to end and asked the Russian children to visit them again.
On the evening of May 6th.there was a large concert in Camberg*. The Angels of Peace performance moved the hearts of many people. There was also a very deep and well organized Bridge of Peace program between Germany and Russia. Many people from both sides couldn’t hold back their tears.
On May 7th. the Angels of peace gave one more concert in Stuttgart. It was a great testimony to the statement of Fyodor Dostoevsky, that the soul is healed by being with children.
And the Russian children were really deeply moved by the love and care from the German people!!
*The German training center is located in the “Neumühle”, which is part of Bad Camberg, Germany. This training center is commonly referred to as “Camberg”.
