Go to Peace Monuments by Theme to access separate web pages for many different themes & subjects. These files show HOW peace monuments relate to each other internationally. For example, all peace bells (that I've found so far) are in one file, and all peace monuments related to reconciliation are in another.
"Themes" is a catch-all category which labels most any way that peace monuments can be described, e.g. physical form, different symbols of peace, various episodes of history & the organizations (both formal & informal) with which they can be identified. The very long list of categories below names only a few of the many themes which could be identified.
Any given peace monument can be classified in multiple themes. For example, the Tsitsernakapert Erevanme is a genocide memorial in Yerevan (Armenia). By definition, it belongs to the theme of genocide, but its shape assigns it to the theme of peace towers, and its eternal flame causes it to be also included under the theme of peace flames.

If you find these web pages interesting, you are cordially invited to help create & maintain them.
Almost anyone could submit information about a peace monument (or peacemaker) known to YOU.
A STUDENT in need of a research project or a RETIREE in search of an interesting avocation could take on one or more parts of this website. No one has all of the skills (research, photography, travel, database management, writing, fund-raising, social media & website creation -- among others) needed to make this website achieve its full potential. But YOU could contibute what you do best, and others could contribute what they do best.
Together, we could make this website BLOOM -- and help save the world from war & violence. Is this too big an ambition? I don't think so. Everyone has to do what he or she can. That's the only way we can make progress toward our goal of a world without violence & injustice, i.e. toward PEACE.
Eventually -- possibly in just a few months or years -- the time & attention of the guy who started "Peace Monuments Around the World" will fade, and his creation will EITHER disappear OR live on in the hands of one or more successors. Which shall it be?
If any of this interests you (even a small part), please contact Ted Lollis in any of the ways shown on the CONTACT page. Start a low-key dialogue. No obligation. Don't delay! Do so TODAY!
