اللجنة الوطنية لانصار السلم
“The National Committee for Peace supporters”

Have you heard of such a committee in Kuwait?

That’s what I found in this 52 years old issue of an Iraqi magazine.

Al-Wadi (“The Valley”) – Iraq
Issue #9 – Saturday 8th of March, 1954.

هل هناك قائمة بأسماء أعضاء اللجنة؟

أوائل الخمسينات من القرن الماضي كانت بداية عصر انفتاح على أفكار كثيرة. وبالخصوص بين الطلبة المبتعثين إلى مصر وإنجلترا.

تذكرني بمحاضرات برتراند راسل في تلك الحقبة، وما بعدها...

Facinating...

It's sad how much of our history remains hidden and undocumented, and in many cases intentionally erased.

I'll try to get more info about the commitee.

Great work iDip :-)
