The following information is NOT printed on this postcard:
Dom Hélder Câmara (1909-1999) was Roman Catholic Archbishop of Olinda and Recife, Brazil.
He is famous for stating, "When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a Communist."
Camara's short tract, Spiral of Violence (1971), was written at the time of the Vietnam war. It is distinctive not just for the manner in which it links structural injustice (Level 1 violence) with escalating rebellion (Level 2 violence) and repressive reaction (Level 3 violence), but also for the way in which Camara calls upon the youth of the world to take steps for breaking the spiral to which their elders are often addicted.
In 1973, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC).
