Not many visitors know that Dr Franck was a dentist who worked with Albert Sweitzer. His Pacem in Terris is a memorial to Pope John XXIII who issued his encyclical in 1963 right after the Berlin Wall went up and there was a Cuban Missile Crisis - that conflict did not have to be that way if one believed in divine intervention. The memorial recounts the suffering of people over the past 100 years with each nail in the post representing the loss of so many thousands of lives from the Holocaust thru Dafur and other places. The converted mill serves as a temple of sorts where one automatically whispers in from of Pope John high up in the corner. The sculptures all are symbolic even the most well known one called "Seven Generations" representing a native American maxim that each generation should leave the earth better for the following 7 generations.
