Gaza burial of two children is World Press Photo of the Year

Friday 15 February 2013

Gaza Burial by Paul Hansen

Swedish photographer Paul Hansen has won the 2012 World Press Photo of the Year competition with a photograph of a group of men on their way to bury two children in Gaza.

'The strength of the pictures lies in the way it contrasts the anger and sorrow of the adults with the innocence of the children,' said jury member Mayu Mohanna. 'It’s a picture I will not forget.'

In total, 54 photographers from 32 nationalities won prizes in the Amsterdam-based organisation's annual competition. By the mid-January deadline, 103,481 images had been submitted by 5,666 photographers from 124 countries.

An exhibition of the winning entries will open in Amsterdam on April 26 before going on tour.

Nothing special here. Israel humiliates, incarcerates and kills non-Jews all the time. Non-Jewish children are Non-Jews. American money, technology and UN vetoes make it all possible.

Shocking that the editors at dutchnews.nl allowed the first comment to remain. It says a lot about the views of the website.

It is very improbable for any who comments on this topic (the conflict, war, hate...) to be unbiased. Even if you would really wanted to. We all are continuously exposed to a huge media war of very powerful opponents. The point is, which hardly one speaks out, that taking a side in war which produces millions of losers and a handful of doubtful gainers is a nonsence. I just hope that critical amount of people would see the only possible victory in the eternal peace with all the sides concentrating on their true interests and goals. Profits of peace are so much greater.
