  • Library User in the Spotlight: Nathália Brandão

    décembre 20, 2017

    Welcome to Den Haag, an international city where peace and democracy are cardinal virtues! Sunday morning and I was right there: at the entrance, just waiting for the course on the fundamentals of European Union Law. In spite of being pervaded by both enthusiasm and anxiety, the iconic Peace Palace building and its glorious garden engaged me with anticipation of the things to come. I glimpsed a path that would lead me to an intellectual journey shrouded by a serene atmosphere.

  • Hiroshima A-Bombed Tree Ceremony

    décembre 6, 2017

    On the occasion of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to ICAN, a descendant of a Haki-kima-kaki tree (Diospyros kaki) that has emerged after the Hiroshima atomic attack has found a new home in the garden of the Peace Palace. Seeds from that Hako-kima-kaki tree were sent from Hiroshima to the Hortus botanicus in Leiden. They have been germinated there and have now grown into a beautiful young tree. In short speeches we have commemorated the victims of the atomic attack that remind us of the need to abolish nuclear weapons. The cruelty of atomic bombs and the suffering of the citizens of Horoshima and Nagasaki is engraved in our memory. Yet the beauty of a surviving tree from Japan gives hope for a better and more peaceful world.
