the stage is set
To many war in Europe seemed far away in the decades before 1914.

French idealist Frederic Passy believed the age of war was in the past.

Otto von Bismarck didn’t share their optimism. “but you will see it, and it will start in the east.” It was Bismarck’s prediction that came true.

Alfred Nobel (Dynamites Inventor) came to regret the militaristic use of his invention. In his will he set up the Nobel Peace Prize for the individual most responsible for the advancement of peace in a given year.

Women’s Suffrage movement also supported peace movement.

Aletta Jacobs (first women doctor in the Netherlands) argued that if women won the vote, they would be able to prevent wars. “They don’t feel as men do about war. They are the mothers of the race. Men think of the economic results, women think of the grief and pain.”

Governments also backed peace, The Universal Peace Conference brought together leaders from many nations to submit their disputes. There was no legal leverage but it was a step toward keeping peace.

Ass you will see there are other forces pushing Europe to the brink of war.
