WARSAW, POLAND. As part of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, held in Warsaw from October 21-23, an exhibition chronicled the history of the Nobel Peace Prize. Throughout 30 photographs, classified according to the nature of the prize obtained, the tradition initiated by Alfred Nobel in 1901 is displayed. In its 112-year-long existence, the Nobel Peace Prize has recognized personas from His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela to organizations such as the Red Cross and the European Union. According to Alfred Nobel, the Prize is awarded to those who have “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
