Happy 75th - Temple of Peace

Sat, 30/11/2013 (All day)
Town/City: 
CARDIFF

The Temple of Peace in Cardiff was opened on 23 November 1938. Lord Davies gifted it to the Welsh people as a memorial to men ‘from all nations who gave their lives in the war that was to end war’.

Davies was actively involved in the search for stable international order through the League of Nations and the League of Nations Union. He wanted to see the establishment of a strong International Police force so that international agreement and peace could be obtained. In a letter of 1943, he asked ‘what doth it profit a nation if it gains the whole world and loses its own soul?’
