Joyce Apsel, author of Introducing Peace Museums (Routledge, 2016), discusses a series of images from peace museums world-wide. These sites relate stories and display artifacts—banners, diaries, songs, and posters, for example - about such themes as art and peace, pacifism, antiwar histories, protest, peacekeeping and social justice. They also promote cultures of peace. This book introduces their different approaches from Japan, which has the largest number of sites, to Bradford, UK and Guernica, Spain. Some peace museums and centers emphasize popular peace symbols and figures like Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., others provide alternative narratives about conscientious objection or civil disobedience, and still others are sites of persuasion, challenging the status quo about issues of war, peace, disarmament, and related issues. Vittorio Pallotti displays images and describes Casa per la Pace in Casalecchio di Reno where close to 5,000 peace posters are housed. These posters depict the rich history of Italian pacifism and social protest from marches to sit-ins as well as peace activities in Europe and world-wide.
