100 years for Peace
2020 is the year in which The Rev. Sun Myung Moon would have been 100 years old. This exhibition is dedicated to his comprehensive work of peace.
Together with his wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han, he set out initiatives for the reunification of Korea, for religious freedom in the then communist Soviet Union, for interreligious dialogue, for the renewal of the family, for culture in the service of peace and for an international highway for peace, to name but a few of his projects.
Through this exhibition we are celebrating the centenary of the birth of Sun Myung Moon and honoring his life’s work. His life was truly extraordinary and we are proud to present this compilation of major aspects of his life, work and ideas. This year we also celebrate the 60th Wedding Anniversary of Father and Mother Moon, also known as the True Parents. Since Father Moon’s passing in 2012, Mother Moon has continued their joint work to create a world of peace.
Mother of Peace
After the death of Rev. Moon in 2012, his wife continued Rev. Moon's global peace efforts. In the last 5 years alone, she has initiated numerous new organizations in the service of international cooperation and peace-building, such as the Assembly of the International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP), the Assembly of the Interreligious Association for Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP) and many others.

As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen
For years I have called for a world where all religions live together as one, all races live as one, and all nations exist as one. For thousands of years history has seen the continuous increase of divisions. Now, however, we live in an age of globalism. For the sake of the future we must become one.

Mother od Peace
For the first time, I am opening up a window into my life. I do so with the hope that the story of this life, lived in accordance with God’s love, will inspire in others the same mission, passion, devotion and dream.
