At a school in Karlshorst: Malala Yousafzai Square in Berlin-Lichtenberg?

Malala Yousafzai is the United Nations Messenger of Peace and the youngest winner in the history of the Nobel Prize. In 2014, the Pakistani children’s rights activist won the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2012, she was assassinated because she campaigned for the rights of girls in Afghanistan to continue attending mainstream schools. In 2013, Yousafzai gave a globally acclaimed speech to the United Nations Youth Assembly.

The “AG Street Names” district wants to name a previously unnamed place after itself. A new school is being built in Blockdammweg near Parkstadt Karlshorst and the Attorney General sees fit to name the area in front of the school “Malala-Yousafzai-Platz”. Because she is “a figure in contemporary history who has made a significant contribution to children’s right to education and has achieved recognition across national borders.”

It should be remembered that education cannot be taken for granted all over the world. The AG will lobby the Senate for the nomination. The District Council Board (BVV) unanimously approved a similar proposal.

Malala Yousafzai and British journalist Christina Lamb analyze in the book “I Am Malala – The Girl Who The Taliban Wanted to Shoot Because She Fights for the Right to Education” what the social situation is like in her home country of Pakistan, especially with regard to children. Education, women’s and children’s rights. It refers to the political circumstances, explaining how power was distributed in the country, how the Taliban’s growing influence, and ultimately their complete seizure of power in their region of Swat occurred.
