The Pacifism of Henry Dunant

R. Ottaviani, P. Vanni, M. Barra


From various writings of the founder of the International Red Cross and above all from his late work Lavenir sanglant it is deduced as the Dunant anticipating and prophetically interpreting the curse of the war is an internationalist (for some aspects a romantic anarchist) and a convinced pacifist. We show therefore how much has been false and backbiters the defamations that followed to the attribution of the first Nobel prize for the peace.
