Programme of the 2015 Peace Table

Zum Abschluss der Friedenstafel starteten Hunderte Ballons in den Himmel.

The Nuremberg Peace Table is a celebration of the solidarity of Nuremberg citizens with their award winner. While joining the table and eating, there will be occasions for talking with Amirul Haque Amin, members of the international jury and many of those who are committed to the struggle for human rights.

The 2015 Peace Table takes place on the 29th of September from Hallplatz and Kornmarkt to the Dr. Kurt Schumacher Straße and along the Way of Human Rights. You'll find the detailed programme below.
