"What a world we could build if we constituted the forces that unleashed a war for the construction. A tenth of the energies that have consumed the warring nations would be enough to give people of all countries to arrange a decent life and to prevent the catastrophe of unemployment in the world. "

Welcome to our website!

Find like-minded people on peace in the world? You are looking for other people who call something against war and military armor to do? Do you want your children to learn to play peace, instead watch these movies with violence and play on the computer? Do you want to do something about climate change? Ask yourself why the world already spends more money on defense than during the cold war? If you move something from all this, then please read on and think with us about it why the world's military spending totaled to $ 1756 billion in 2012. This means 2.5% of the global GDP or 249 $ per Person worldwide. That's 14 times the global aid. The annual weapons production in the world increased to the a gigantic amount of more than 500 billion dollars per year.

We thank you for visiting us, because we need to do something, need to understand, reflect, act. Peace is not just something. Pacifists for a few, for the Christmas Eve, for good intentions, for morality. Disarmament and Peace in the 21st Century has become a matter of survival for our civilization. The world can no longer afford wars. One in five people can not read and write, one in four is hungry. The goal to halve the number of undernourished people by 2015 will not be achieved. In addition, the poverty in the Third World creates opposition. This lump sum dismiss the word terrorism is wrong. The risk of infections on the world rises and the civilization-threatening climate change caused by humans is in full swing. 60% of the world's ecosystems are degraded and abrupt collapse of ecosystems but also a worldwide energy crisis are now no longer be excluded.

It says war is the father of all things. That may once have been. Today this is no longer true but war and arms are the end of all things. Without tolerance, disarmament and control of the international arms trade, there is no future for our planet.

Our internet presentation is to inform you what to do, who we are and what we do. Contact us, report "news", ask questions, make suggestions. And of course, we will ask you for help. Without donations, donations in kind or without active help, we can not solve our tasks.

We are a charitable foundation may rely on many volunteers, in kind of companies and organizations. Nevertheless, every donation is a gift with which we can continue to give us. The best gift, however, is and will be peace for the people.

Information about the former NS - Wehrmacht prison Anklam

The NS-Wehrmacht prison Anklam was during the Second World War one of the seven central jails of the "Wehrmacht" on the so - called "home territory". During this time, several thousand members of the "Wehrmacht" have been detained. Besides criminal offenses countless members of the Wehrmacht came to the Anklamer prison for desertion, absence without leave, and military morale. So far it is known that 134 soldiers and officers were executed in Anklam, mostly for desertion. They wanted to escape for very different reasons the further use of criminal war aims of the Nazis. During the Second World War, there were approximately 1,000 courts-martial, of which an estimated 30,000 death sentences were passed, of which 20,000 were executed. In comparison, during the First World War, the German "Militarjustiz" let execute 48 death sentences. Permeated by Nazi racial and biological ideas, full of blind devotion to duty, the Nazi military judges were active tools of fascist terror. As the war progressed less and less on their sentences were convicted in the Wehrmacht prisons. From here, the transports went into the infamous probation and criminal units, mostly on the Eastern Front. Life-threatening, harassment, minimal food and lack of medical care were part of the everyday life of the "other soldiers".
