May 6th, 2009  |  Published in Second Life News

The Learning Experience organizes a special day of events in memorial of World Ward II Veterans on May 9th 2009. Events will include a poetry contest, music and a lecture by holocaust survivor Fanny Starr. This all will take place at the TLE War Memorial Wall, a place dedicated to the remembrance of war veterans.

“They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more”, a hopeful quote from the Old Testament from the Prophet Isaiah, displayed at the War Memorial Wall at TLE in Second Life, part of the interactive museum.

This special place in Second Life, dedicated to the remembrance of War Veterans, those who served or are still serving their nations on the battlefield, will be the décor for a special day of remembrance on May 9th.

The event will start at 11am SLT with a musical performance by Clarice Karu, remembering tunes from that era. An hour later at 12pm SLT holocaust survivor, Fanny Starr, will take the stage and tell her life story as a Jew in nazi-Germany and how she survived the holocaust.

Together with this event, TLE has organized a poetry contest. All people may submit poems related to World War II, submissions must be in at May 8th, 12am SLT. All poems will be bundled afterwards in a book published by the TLE Publishing House.

At the memorial wall there are several memorial plaques for sale. These plaques can be used to pay tribute to those who served and are thankfully still alive, those who were killed during war or acts of war or those who were killed during terrorist attacks. This applies to all religions, creeds, nationalities, and beliefs.

All info on the event, contest and memorial plaques can be found at the Memorial Wall at the TLE-Campus in Second Life. (
