This is the first draft of a series of presentations to be used
in peace education.
The idea is that the teacher or the student notes down on paper or
a computer what is important in the slide show and uses the key
words to search for more documentation and literature to be used in
the project of study.
All the slides in this show deals with the Vietnam War, its
consequences for the humans and reactions to it, based upon a free
interpretation of the song Portland Town written and played by the
banjo player Derroll Adams. The song from 1957 was originally a
comment on the war in Korea.
It is hoped that there in the future will be added more slides to
the growing project of establishing a Danish peace education.
Some of the slides presented here don’t need translation and
they are rare and are not, to the best of our knowledge, published
anywhere else online.
If some of the slides in the show appear rather dark on the
computer screen, please feel free to download the slide show and
adjust the slides according to your likening.
