Bells of Peace

Every year on April 19, the Bells of Peace will ring on 10.55 a.m., it is a tradition in Halle since 2010, when Matthias J. Maurer had the idea because of the peaceful end of World War II and to remember that fact.

Of course not every year we will have an event to be compared with the one we had in 2015 at the 70th anniversary of the end of the war.

But in 2016 we had a little surprise, because a new little book got completed.

On about 80 pages the author Matthias J. Maurer explaines the fascinating story of the history of these Bells of Peace in Halle, how the story began in 2010 with a simple idea and what was the way to the big event last year.

The book contains more than 100 photos never published before, some have been taken with historic cameras by one of the so called re-enactors, who played the Timberwolves in 2015.

It is written in English and Germany so a perfect item for our members and friends abroad.
