  • ‘Lay Down Your Arms!’ in Every Bookcase

    juin 22, 2018

    Everyone knows: without Bertha von Suttner the would be no Peace Palace. Her world famous book Lay Down Your Arms! has been instrumental in the creation of the PCA, the establishment of the Peace Palace and the peace movement. It has therefore been a foundation for the message of peace that the Peace Palace still carries out every day. Her work however is not widely read (in Dutch). The Dutch translation of Lay Down Your Arms! Dates back to 1925 and has become virtually unreadable. For that reason, the Peace Palace Library wishes to publish a modern rephrasing of Lay Down Your Arms! in honour of Bertha von Suttner’s 175th birthday.
