Since the late nineteenth and throughout the twentieth century, German-speaking women worked towards global ideals by participating in international organizations and pan-European programs: Bertha von Suttner paved the way for the UN, Annette Kolb advocated for French-German friendship in the first half of the twentieth century, Erika Mann exposed the National Socialists’ usurpation of German children’s bodies and minds. Papers will examine the motivations behind German-speaking women's pacifist and/or altruistic activism from 1871 to 1945.
