Briefmarken für den Frieden

Silvain Wyler verbindet die Veräusserung


seiner Briefmarken-Sammlungen „Inco-
ming Mail Schweiz“ und „Kaiserreich Ös-
terreich“ (siehe Katalog Corinphila Aukti-
on 166) mit der Entscheidung, die erzielten
Auktionserlöse in vollem Umfang dem
Schweizer Kinderdorf KIRIAT YEARIM
in Israel zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Was macht KIRIAT YEARIM?

KIRIAT YEARIM ist ein christlich-jüdi-


sches Gemeinschaftswerk. Es wurde 1951
von Schweizerinnen und Schweizern ge-
gründet und fördert als Schweizer Hilfs-
werk sozial benachteiligte Kinder und Ju-
gendliche in Israel, unabhängig von ihrer
Herkunft, Sprache und Religion. KIRIAT
YEARIM engagiert sich für die soziale
Integration und Förderung des Dialogs
und begleitet Kinder und Jugendliche auf
ihrem Weg zu selbstbewussten Menschen
und selbstständigen Mitgliedern der Ge-
sellschaft.
Dabei sind Schule, Bildung und Kultur
zentrale Bausteine für eine soziale Inte-
gration. KIRIAT YEARIM gibt Kindern
die Chance lernen zu können und ermög-
licht eine qualifizierte Ausbildung. Dazu
kommt eine interreligiöse und interna-
tionale Zusammenarbeit, insbesondere
durch Projekte der Zusammenarbeit mit
der arabischen Bevölkerung in Israel.
Incoming Mail Schweiz aus der Silvain Wyler Grossgold International Sammlung "Destinationen Schweiz" 147
Wie hilft KIRIAT YEARIM?

Das Engagement von KIRIAT YEARIM steht auf drei Säulen:


* die Unterstützung des Schweizer Kinderdorfes KIRIAT YEARIM,
* das Angebot von Bildungsprogrammen für die arabische Bevölkerung,
* verschiedene Projekte des Dialogs zwischen den Bevölkerungsgruppen.

Das Schweizer Kinderdorf KIRIAT YEARIM auf den Hügeln Jerusalems betreibt eine Schule und ein Internat. Hier
werden 150 Kinder in 6 Klassen ganztägig betreut. Die Schüler des Dorfes gehören zur schwächsten Bevölkerungsgruppe
in Israel. Einige stammen aus Haushalten, in denen selbst die grundlegenden materiellen Bedürfnisse nicht erfüllt werden
können. Das Kinderdorf bietet den Jugendlichen für drei bis sechs Jahre ein neues Zuhause.
Seit 1969 besteht eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit dem „Trust of Programmes for early Childhood, Family and Community
Education“ sowie dessen Leiter Farid Abu Gosh. Der Trust fördert Projekte für die arabische Bevölkerung in Israel, u.a.
Kindergärten in Ramle und im Negev, Tageszentren für Mädchen und ein „Mother-to-Mother-Programme“. Diese Pro-
gramme sorgen dafür, dass Frauen und Jugendliche ihre Zukunft aktiv nach ihren Wünschen gestalten können.
Seit 2001 unterstützt KIRIAT YEARIM ausgewählte Dialogprogramme für einen kulturellen Austausch zwischen der
jüdischen und der arabischen Bevölkerung in Schulen. Ziel ist eine friedliche Koexistenz der verschiedenen Kulturen. In
Haifa, der grössten ‚mixed city’ Israels werden regelmässig Sommerlager für 6- bis 12-jährige jüdische und arabische Kinder
durchgeführt. Diese Sommerlager haben inzwischen Modellcharakter für ganz Israel.

Visionen und Pläne für die Zukunft

KIRIAT YEARIM strebt danach, ein Jugenddorf zu sein, das im Bereich der Betreuung von gefährdeten Jugendlichen
in Israel führend ist. Die Zahl geförderter Kinder und Jugendlicher soll weiter steigen. Für ‚Ehemalige’ ist ein ‚Zuhause’
geplant, in das sie nach dem Schulabschluss zurückkehren können. Dieses ‚Zuhause für Ehemalige’ soll einen sicheren
Hafen in der Welt und ein warmes Zuhause in ihrer Freizeit während der weiterführenden Ausbildung bieten. Für die Rea-
lisierung neuer Lehrpläne ist eine Werkstatt für künstlerische Fachrichtungen vorgesehen. Gleichzeitig ist die Erweiterung
der Schreinerei und der Metallbearbeitung geplant.

Anerkennung als gemeinnützige Organisation

KIRIAT YEARIM hat hohe Qualität, Transparenz und Seriosität zu den Leitlini-
en der Hilfe gemacht. Die Jahresrechnung wird zweifach revidiert und erfüllt die
Qualitätsanforderungen der in der Schweiz offiziell anerkannten Zertifizierungs-
stelle (ZEWO). Wichtig für die Auswahl der geförderten Projekte sind Nachhaltig-
keit und Wirksamkeit. Das Projektcontrolling erfolgt aus der Schweiz. Der Verein
‚KIRIAT YEARIM – Schweizer Kinderdorf in Israel’ verfügt über 14 Regionalko-
mitees in der Schweiz mit 120 ehrenamtlichen Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeitern.

2671 New Zealand 1873 (June): Cover from Westland to Locarno, Switzerland via Suez,
franked by two horizontal pairs of 1871 2 d. orange, perf. 12 1/2, tied by bold strikes of
rare "W" handstamp of Westland. The stamps have been lifted for checking and carefully
replaced, with slight tear in perfs. of the left hand pair. London transit cds (Sept 9) in red

the credit to Britain and further mss. '20' (centimes) being the credit to France. Reverse
with Hokitika cds (June 30), Christchurch transit (July 2) and Locarno arrival (Nov 11)
datestamp. Some ageing to envelope and small piece removed from reverse, however a rare
'Goldrush' cover to Switzerland with no similar item recorded. Note: In 1873 the usual via
San Francisco route was interrupted and the rate to Switzerland via Suez was officially 9
pence, as introduced in November 1871. The British share on this cover is noted clearly as
2 pence, so it has to be assumed that the reduction in rate to 8 pence (officially pronounced
on Jan 1, 1874) was already in force.
Provenance: Collection H. Dumas. 133 6 5'000 (€ 3'650 )

(June 26) and Calais transit of the following day; reverse with two flaps missing showing
Colesburg oval, Capetown transit, Paris transit and "Schweiz Bahnpost / Basel-Olten" cds.
Despite the imperfections this is an extraordinary rarity with very few combination covers
with Woodblocks known (or indeed covers with more than a single 4 d.) and, the unique
example recorded used to Switzerland. Note: "Woodblock" covers overseas are tremendous
rarities, with three covers known to the UK, one to France and one to New Zealand.
