The Peace Prize
Every two years, Osnabrück awards the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Prize.Erich-Maria-Remarque-peace-prize
Seven themes in seven months: From April to October, each month has a focus that revolves particularly around a peace theme. The monthly theme weeks form the common thread of the anniversary program. All themes are united by one question: What can we take away and learn from the historic peace treaty of 1648 for the present and ultimately the future?
The Peace Award stands for people who build bridges in hopeless conflict situations.
This peace agreement was hard fought for. The result still serves as a model today.
