This is the 1910 autobiography of Baroness Bertha von Suttner (1843-1914), an Austrian-Bohemian novelist and leading figure in the peace movement. Von Suttner wrote many books, including the novel Lay Down your Arms, her most famous work. In 1905 she became the second female Nobel laureate, the first woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and the first Austrian laureate. Her memoirs record the chief events of her life from her birth in Prague until the death of her husband, Baron Arthur von Suttner, in 1902. The two combined volumes cover her childhood, meeting with Alfred Nobel, her wedding, and life in the Caucasus with her husband. In addition, it includes her trips to the US and to the first Peace Conference in The Hague.
