Spreading the Message of Peace
For the Frauenkirche in Dresden, spreading the message of peace, reconciliation, understanding and tolerance to generations to come is a matter of special importance. Thus, a peace competition has been initiated with this aim in mind. Young people are encouraged put forward their ideas, wishes, hopes, demands and proposed solutions for a more peaceful, just and safer world.
Invitations to compete in this event were first issued throughout Saxony in 2014. 125 young people of school age responded straightaway; three prize-winning groups emerged as winners. In 2016, another peace competition accompanied the next Nobel Peace Prize Laureate's speech by Ahmet Üzümcü.
