Alfred Hermann Fried was one of the most prominent pacifist writers before
the First World War. After becoming aware of the organized peace movement
in 1891, he left his job as a bookseller and devoted himself to the
pacifism as a journalist and writer. His reputation as one of the leading
pacifists emerged after The First Hague Conference of 1899. This
reputation was especially based on editing the journal “Die
Friedens-Warte” and the formulation of a scientific pacifistic concept –
the “revolutionary pacifism”. As an approval for his work he was honored
with the Nobel Peace Prize in 1911 and with the honorary doctorate of the
University of Leiden in 1913. From 1891 until 1914 Fried cooperated
intensively with Bertha von Suttner, who appreciated his effort very much.
