Strange War: Stories for a Culture of Peace
- "It is not enough to tell children that war is a bad thing and peace
is much nicer", says Auer. "They want and need to know more: Why do people
fight wars? Has war existed always? How did it come into the world? Is
war something that just cannot be avoided? Maybe because human nature
just is aggressive and murderous? Is it possible that a war 'breaks
out' even if the majority of people want peace? Who is responsible for
the keeping of peace? Governments? The Soldiers? Everybody? - In these
stories I have tried to tackle philosophical, economical, anthropological
and political questions without oversimplifying them and still in such
a way that children can understand."
