THE INITIATORS
 

Ahmed Radwan

 

Ahmed Radwan was born in Egypt and moved to Vienna and New York in the 1990s. Since 2000, he has worked in a number of ways with regard to a ‘Dialogue of Cultures’. He has made many contacts worldwide through his international activities with people involved in politics, culture, and business. He has visited many countries at the invitation of governments and has initiated dialogue between people with positions of responsibility. He has accompanied the Austrian President Heinz Fischer for state visits as a member of the delegation to various countries. Above all, his friendship with Branko Lustig, a survivor of a WWII concentration camp and producer of the films “Schindler’s List” and “Kingdom of Heaven” has greatly influenced him and encouraged him in his endeavors to build bridges and bring people closer together.
