It all started on 27 June 1982 in Rummelsburg in East Berlin. On that day, 3,000 people took part in an event initiated by environmental, peace and human rights groups on the grounds of the Church of the Redeemer. Activists for the foundation of an Anti-war museum in East Berlin publicly showed their first exhibition here. Others followed shortly afterwards at other locations.

In 1984, a permanent exhibition space was opened in the Bartholomew Church, and in 1985 the library. To date, more than 2,600 exhibitions have been shown to an audience of millions at almost 600 locations, first in the GDR and later in united Germany and abroad.

Many of the exhibitions focus on the biographies of people who have shown courage and attitude, stood up for other people and often paid for it with their lives.

With the work exhibition "A powerful impulse to action", the Museum Pankow pays tribute to the work done so far by the Peace Library and the Anti-War Museum and shows selected, supplemented and annotated sources and objects from 40 years of their existence.
