Say „YES!“ to Peace and Security

Faces of Peace: Well-known people are taking a stand in the name of peace and security!

The potential for conflict within Europe and worldwide is increasing – in number and intensity. Following the withdrawal from the INF Treaty and a rapidly changing global security architecture, we need, more than ever, an informed and mature civil society. As the peace-building equivalent of the Faces of Democracy initiative – and true to the motto “Sign for Peace and Security” – we want to raise an awareness that each and every one of us can make a valuable contribution to promoting a peaceful and secure coexistence.

The privately organized initiative gains media attention through many well-known interviewees such as the Director of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) Dan Smith. Together with our signatories from around the world, these are the faces of peace. Show your face as well, say YES! to peace and security and join our growing community in Germany, Europe, and around the world.

- The Interview -
Vasili Arkhipov (†72)
Chief of Staff of the 69th Submarine Brigade of the Northern Fleet
“One evening my mother was preparing dinner, as she waited for my father, when the doorbell rang. A soldier stood there with my father’s leather jacket - a warm leather military jacket that was lined with fur. The soldier said nothing, only suggesting that Vasili Arkhipov would not be coming home today. ‘He’s going to sea!’ was all he added.”

Wassili Archipow (†72)
Stabschef der 69. U-Boot-Brigade der Nordmeerflotte
„Meine Mutter war gerade dabei das Abendessen zuzubereiten und wartete auf meinen Vater, als es an der Türe klingelte. Dort stand ein Soldat mit der Lederjacke meines Vaters - einer warmen Leder-Militärjacke, die mit Pelz gefüttert war. Der Soldat sagte nichts und meinte nur, dass Wassili Archipow heute nicht nach Hause kommt. ‚Er geht aufs Meer!‘ war das Einzige, was er noch hinzufügte.“
