Interview with Prof. Lothar Krappmann by Arthur Kisitu
Prof. Lothar Krappmann, before retiring, was a researcher on child development at the Max-Planck Institute in Berlin, Germany and was for many years an expert in the UN commission of the Rights of the Child in Geneva. In this interview that he gave to Arthur Conrad Kisitu, filmmaker from Uganda and initiator of Peace Matters (an Art Exchange Program between children of Germany and Uganda), he talks about the need for personal contact between children of different nations and continents in order to establish and strengthen a culture of peace. He gives personal testimony of his time as a teenager in postwar Germany and what a great influence it had on him meeting children and young adults in neighbouring, former enemy countries like France with the help of state-organised exchange programs.
