Erich Maria Remarque was born in Osnabrück in 1898 and is one of the most important German writers of the 20th century. In his novels, Remarque focuses on the atrocities of war and its consequences for individuals. Among his most famous works are the two novels "Nothing New in the West" (1929) and "The Three Comrades" (1938).
In honor of his pacifist commitment, the city of Osnabrück has awarded the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Prize every two years since 1991. In 1996, the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Center was also founded, which houses, among other things, a permanent exhibition on Remarque's life and work.
In 2023, to mark the 125th anniversary of Erich Maria Remarque's birth, the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Center will present a special program as part of the Year of Peace, which will include the awarding of the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Prize.
