A general view of participants in the book discussion

On Wednesday, September 26, the Information Resource Center of the US Embassy held a book discussion using a Nouveaux Horizons title in French, Halte à la haine!. (Stop the Hate! in English.) Twenty-five people from different backgrounds participated in the discussion, which covered the notions of hate and prejudice and how children learn and unlearn them. The book aroused an excellent debate on tolerance, the acceptance of being different, and the role of education, leadership and communication/dialogue in de-constructing hate and establishing a long-lasting peace.
