Tanenbaum Peacemaker in Action, Ephraim Isaac of Ethiopia, was admitted to the Royal Order of the Polar Star on Thursday, December 5th. A ceremony was held at the Swedish House in Washington DC and was presided over by the Ambassador of Sweden, H.E. Bjorn Lyrvall. The award dates back to 1748 and is conferred to Swedish and foreign nationals for “civic merits, for devotion to duty, for science, literacy, learned and useful works and for new beneficial institutions.”
This is an impressive accomplishment and Tanenbaum and the Peacemakers in Action Network are thrilled to see Ephraim and his work for peace receiving the recognition it deserves.
