Photographer's Note

The Churches of Peace (German: Friedenskirche) in Silesia were named after the Peace of Westphalia of 1648 which permitted the Lutherans in the Roman Catholic parts of the Holy Roman Empire to build Evangelical churches, to be built outside the city walls and made of wood with no nails.
.
Since 2001, the two remaining large ones are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
