Peter Faber (deceased 2009) was one of the founding members of the Annecy-Bayreuth twinning.

In his youth he was profoundly touched by the atrocities of the war and since his captivity in France he worked tirelessly to reconcile and foster friendships between France and Germany. As a French language teacher he devoted his life to openness and mutual discovery and promoting youth exchanges to facilitate this.

In recognition for this commitment he was made an Honorary Citizen of the Town of Annecy and is one of the few to be appointed as a Knight of the National Order of the Legion of Honor.

To perpetuate his memory, which remains a source of inspiration for twinning and for our youth, the Town of Annecy created a prize bearing his name.

What is the Peter Faber prize ?
