On Monday, 18 September at 10:30, an exhibition of hope for justice and peace in the Holy Land was opened at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva.

The exhibition is part of the “Seek #JusticeAndPeace in the Holy Land” social media campaign, which began in June this year in connection with the 50-year mark of the Six-Day War and the occupation it entailed.

The opening of the exhibition on Monday coincides with the World Week of Peace in Palestine and Israel (WWPPI), a global yearly event to advance peace and join in prayers for the Middle East.

The exhibition is a strong and touching expression of hope for justice and peace by 12 Palestinians and Israelis who all are victims of the occupation.

The exhibition is produced and hosted by the World Council of Churches and the venue is the Ecumenical Centre at 150 route de Ferney in Geneva.
