SUBALBUM:  Bertha von Suttner

She turned away from aristocratic militarism, published an anti-war novel, founded a pacifist organization in Austria, and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1905. According to her Wikipedia article, "Bertha von Suttner was recently selected as a main motif for a high value collectors' coin: the 2008 Europe Taler. The reverse shows important people in the history of Europe, including Bertha von Suttner. Also depicted in the coin are Martin Luther (symbolising the transition from the Middle Ages to the modern period); Antonio Vivaldi (exemplifying the importance of European cultural life); and James Watt (representing the industrialization of Europe, inventor of the first steam engine in the 18th century)."
