„This was peacecamp 2013“

Please write a brief essay „this was peacecamp 2013“ in which you convey your personal thoughts and impressions about the peacecamp in which you have participated.

Peacecamp was a very interesting experiment it changed lots of concepts in my life and the way I think. I met new people they made me realize that not all people are the same not everyone is racist. People can be very friendly even the people that I use to consider as enemies I now consider as best friends. It changed my opinion of when I see jews think twice before making a final decision and this person might even become my best friend.

Peacecamp 2013 was

Peacecamp 2013 was…

…exciting, salutary, instructive, interesting, unique, diverse, arduous, back-breaking, intense, energizing, adventurous, fun and sad – all at the same time!!!

…to be woken up at 7.30 each end every day in the first week of your holidays-and than eating watermelon for breakfast.

…exchanging stories, sharing experiences and feeling the importance of an individual in a community.

…getting to know the customs of other cultures and religions.

…laughing, singing, dancing (also in the rain), screaming, crying together.

…having long walks trough melodic wheat and rye fields in the beautiful landscape of the Waldviertel.

…doing almost everything “4 peace”.

…being incredible impressed by seeing how talented everybody of us is.

…a short but amazing trip to the idyllic little Slavonice in Czech Republic, in which communication is a problem and the summer heat tires one to death.

…a full program.

…loads of chocolate bananas and gummi bears.

… sharing a room with 20 other girls.

…learning how to say, "L'chaim".

…getting to a point, whereas you say, “That’s it!” and giving air to your own opinion.

…getting enormously much new energy while meditating every morning.

…gaining friends from Hungary, Israel, France and Austria.

…getting a Kufiya gifted.

…being close to tears while hearing these touching stories such as…seeing a bus, from which you got down two seconds earlier, exploding in front of your eyes.

…experiencing the taste of fresh cheese coated in chocolate from Hungary and eating “Bamba” from Israel.

…celebrating Ramadan and Shabbat.




…wanderlust (yen to see distant places).

This was peacecamp

This was peacecamp
Peacecamp was a real experience for me. I met a lot of good people and I think we all became friends. I learnt a lot of new things about the people of the world. I was in Viena at the first time of my life. I was really enjoyed the time while I was there because Viena is a beautiful city and I love sightseeing. Some thoughts about the place where we stayed. Reibers is a lovely small town. The people were very kind and the hotel was good too. All the boys and all tghe girls stayed seperated in two rooms. At the evenings we had a lot of fun, but we had to woke up early at every morning. That’s why I started every day with coffe.
Peacecamp is the real camp experience and I recommend it everybody.
