    Peace masks

    When I visited Osnabrück in 2012 there were “Peace Masks” on display in various parts of the city.

    These masks were designed to look like that standards that were carried by legions of the Roman army 2000 years ago at the Varus battle, which took place near Osnabrück.

    It turns out that over 2000 of these masks were made by people in Osnabrück and vicinity in a campaign initiated by the Osnabrück artist Volker Johannes Trieb, entitled Dem Frieden gewachsen?! which means roughly “Are we capable of peace?”

    This is Oliver, my friend and the best tourguide in town (he even has the typical umbrella ;-). So if you ever meet him around Osnabrück - ask him all the questions you have (Just don't ask for names of unfamous churches!), he will know an answer!
    But whatever you do - don't doubt that the legends he tells you are true - or you will never be welcome in Osnabrück again...
