Bertha Von Suttner: A Life of Peace Concert and ExhibitExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 — 7:30 PM EDT
Bertha Von SuttnerBertha von Suttner, born in 1843, was in many ways ahead of her times. As an avid pacifist, this remarkable woman was the figurehead of a world-wide peace movement. She relentlessly fought nationalist fanaticism, aggressive militarism, anti-Semitism and recognized the dangers of hate breeding. As a writer and lecturer, she inspired her friend and benefactor Alfred Nobel to create a Peace Prize. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for her most famous novel “Lay Down your Arms”. 
 
Violinist Elena Denisova and her husband, pianist Alexei Kornienko were some of the musicians selected by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to perform a commemoration concert internationally in conjunction with this exhibit.
