Stiftung Friedliche Revolution (Foundation Of The Peaceful Revolution)

The Foundation of the Peaceful Revolution was founded in Leipzig in 2009 by active citizens from East and West Germany. Ever since, it has intervened and encouraged others to commit themselves to democracy, cultural diversity, non-violence and peace in the tradition of the Peaceful Revolution. Thereby, the Foundation not only wants to remind people of the historically outstanding events of the fall of 1989 in the GDR and of the developments in the neighboring countries of Central and Eastern Europe, but also to educate people about the character and dangers of totalitarian systems. The foundation stands for pluralism, the recognition of diversity, and a people-friendly economy. It is its declared goal to raise awareness for active participation in the democratic community.
