Daniela Dahn born Berlin, Germany October 9, 1949. German journalist and peace writer.
“Wars are not won by peoples, only by governments. A minority gains exactly what the majority has to pay for. This has always been the case. But why have people put up with it for thousands of years? The longer one ponders the less can be grasped. Thinking is a quite rational affair, waging war on the other hand a quite irrational one.” (speech on Aachen Peace Prize, 2002; photo kultur-des-friedens.de)
