University of Bradford marks the centenary of World War One with the city's first Peace Pole

Last Saturday the University of Bradford unveiled Bradford's first Peace Pole.* The eight-foot pole is inscribed with the words "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in eight different languages (English, French, German, Russian, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, and Swahili) and in braille. These languages were chosen in part as they represent the major protagonists in the two World Wars. The others were chosen to represent the department's international reach and remit.
