Roses of Peace – level 2

17-06-2021 15:00

Britain and Argentina fought in the Falkland Islands War in 1982. This news is about an Argentinian goldsmith who is on a peace mission.

People gave him pistols, bullets, and even parts of airplanes from the war. He fused both the Argentinian and British metals together, and he created metal roses from the new metal. He calls his project the Two Roses of Peace.

People also know him from making articles for presidents or Pope Francis.

Difficult words: goldsmith (a person who makes golden things), fuse (melt together), article (thing).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
