Jerusalem, the subject of
this book, a very special
place. Jerusalem the leden-
dary, Jerusalem the golden;
the goal, the center, the
shrine of three of the world's
major religions. Ever since
it was stormed and taken by
King David in 1000 BCE
the city has inspired pain-
ters, poets, prophets, and
pilgrims, not to forget-the
philosophers and politicians
with their visions of peace
and dreams of empire.
"Now, in this unique
book, Jerusalem is the in-
spiration for paintings by
children from 43 countries.
Children and Jerusalem —
what a delightful and origi-
nal combination!

ied as the experiences and
environments of the chil-
dren.
"Cherry trees blossom in

Jerusalems inhabited by
American Indians, Mexican
farmers and Renaissance
madonnas; Jerusalems with
landscapes that call to mind
Tahiti, and Africa, old Vie-
nna and the Baghdad of 'A
Thousand and One Nights.'
"One cannot fail to be im-
pressed by the artists' sin-
cerity and optimism, their
joy and faith, and by the
dreams of peace and fellow-
ship that are the underlying
message of these paintings.

"As UNICEF's official

that I congratulate all the

He was the first to show
that it was possible to grow
white blood cells outside the
body and to enable them to
multiply and differentiate.
His pioneering work in this
respect acts as a basis for
experiments by which di-
verse blood cells are culti-
vated outside the body. '
