The winner of the Global Teacher Prize, Hanan Al Hroub, was welcomed as a special guest. Al Hroub, in her capacity as a primary school teacher from Bethlehem, was honoured with this award for her work in Palestine. She is committed to peaceful education in her school and tries to act as a role model for her students. In this way, she contributes to peace in her conflict-ridden homeland.
Another star guest was the pianist Aeham Ahmad, who had been awarded the international prize for human rights at the Beethoven Academy. Ahmad had caused a stir around the world when he played the piano in the streets of his destroyed hometown Damascus and many children gathered around him. In the end, Ahmad had to flee because the IS made threats to his life for his musical resistance.
For AXSOS AG, this day also provided the opportunity to announce the collaboration between the Film Academy in Ludwigsburg and the Al-Quds Film Academy in Jerusalem/Ramallah.
