On the 11th of August 2019, it is exactly 100 years ago that Andrew Carnegie passed away. Carnegie was an successful entrepreneur. In 1901 he sold his imperium and dedicated the rest of his life and his whole capital to society. Thanks to the enormous donation of the philantrophist Carnegie, the Peace Palace could be build.
Since the opening of the Palace in 1913, the employees of the Carnegie Foundation facilitate ”Peace through law” and promote peace in order to prevent wars. Nowadays we try to take Carnegie’s legacy and his ideas on creating and promoting peace into its next century. We are inspired by his words.
Our colleagues remember Andrew Carnegie by giving their favorite Carnegie-quote.
