“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayan

International Peace Month was founded on August 16, 1926, at the Democratic Peace Conference in Germany. This commemorative month is a time to reflect on the destruction that occurred as a result of the First World War (1914-1918), also known as the "Great War." During the war, an estimated 9 million people died in combat in addition to 5 million civilian deaths. International Peace Month is also an opportunity to learn and educate about world peace efforts.
