Petra Schönemann-Behrens provides an informative review of the life and times of Alfred H. Fried (1864-1921), a significant Austrian pacifist of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century.

He was born in Vienna and died there. He lived for many years in Germany and in Exile in Switzerland. 12 years after his death his pacifist books were burned and exist in only a few copies – especially in the countries censored by Nazi-Germany form 1933 till 1945.

This book is an important contribution to heal a global wound in the collective consciousness. As free mason, free thinker with jewish roots who died in 1921 he had like Kant and Suttner global solutions. Right wing zionists, diktators and democrats all around the globe could learn quite a lot from Fried. Nomen est omen! Peace! „Organize the world!“

Peace Activist and Nobel Prize Laureate
