De wapens neer!
(Dutch translation of Lay down your arms!)
This timeless novel, originally written in German and now translated in Dutch, tells the fictive life story of Martha Althaus, a strong and modern woman who survived four wars on which she ruthlessly reported. Author Bertha von Suttner was the first woman to receive the Nobel Peace prize in 1905, and wrote ‘Die Waffen nieder!’ in honour of the 100 year anniversary of the French Revolution in 1889.
