Animals and war

Wednesday September 20, 2023, International Museum of the Reformation, 6:30 p.m.

Take an elephant on a military plane or negotiate a truce to save a lion and a bear! Marion Lombard worked for five years in an organization that rescues animals abandoned in zoos or in private homes in war or conflict zones in order to direct them to secure shelters and offer them a new life. By recounting colorful experiences lived in particular in Iraq, Gaza, Sudan and Pakistan, she illustrates the principle that the state of peace and the state of war concern all living things. In other words, respect for human life is all the more solid as it applies to other forms of existence.
