Windows for Peace

Vienna, Austria –

The Windows for Peace project is a collaborative initiative between the Peace Museum Vienna, located at Blutgasse 3 in the 1st District, and surrounding local businesses, churches and organizations in Vienna. The project utilizes windows in the city centre to showcase influential figures throughout history who have devoted their life and career to peace and tolerance.

The exhibition highlights such figures as Vienna’s own Bertha von Suttner, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, among 150 others. This is the first project in the world to exhibit peace heroes in windows, available to everyone. The exhibit opened on 17 June 2014.

Peace Museum Vienna attempts to conduct peace education through the lives of its Peace Heroes. The museum organises activities such as peace talks, a peace kitchen and peace heroes walks.
