The desire for peace is stronger than ever before. Yet all hopes that people would learn from the terrors of war keep getting disappointed. The atrocities of war seem to fade. War graves are one of the few places where history is made visible. They truly are memorials of millionfold suffering. War graves memoriels cannot prevent war, but they make us think twice. And when we stand at these crosses, we know that is from here that the best reminder of peace is radiated. ( VDK )

War, violence and violation of human rights influence our lives even in the new millenium.Every day the news air terrible pictures into our living rooms.Conflicts and dreadful battles are everywhere. The personnalities of the people who lose their lives disappear completely behind the statistics. The road to solve these conflicts in a peaceful way seems too rocky. Reaching for a weapon has become too easy. At the same time, people’s longing for peace is as strong as ever. ( VDK )
