Bertha von Suttner:
130 Years of Ideas that Don’t Get Old

Did you know that the first female Nobel Peace Prize laureate was born in Prague? Her name was Bertha von Suttner. She was a famous writer and peace activist. Austrians have her on €2 coins. In Czechia, she was nearly forgotten. We’ve changing it! In 2019, we organized a modern Czech translation of her novel Lay Down Your Arms! and launched it at the Old Prague Town Hall during an international conference.
