Image Collection - Cartoons on War and Peace
The Peace Palace Library holds a unique collection of images like posters, engravings, cartoons and photographs. Please, explore our subset of cartoons on war and peace issues here.

For centuries, cartoonists have used their pens to fight a war against war, translating images of violent conflict into symbols of protest. These images tell the story of many journalists and cartoonists around the world struggling to promote peace, justice, democracy and liberty of expression. Cartoons may amuse, provoke, stress truth or paradox in a few lines only. In our collection, among others, an interesting set of 25 cartoons by Alois Derso and Emery Kelèn concerning the Peace Conference in Lausanne at the end of World War I.
