“The Power Of Peace” In 1939, at the age of 69, Dr. Montessori fled Europe and the horrors of war for the second time finding refuge in India. Living in exile for seven years, Maria embraced Indian culture, trained hundreds of teachers and found a close ally in her mission to end war for good and bring peace to the world by educating children. Maria first met Mahatma Gandhi in London when he spoke at her training center. He told her, “We are members of the same family”. And she famously replied, “I bring you the greetings of the children!” Together they would go on to spread their message of peace through education throughout the world.
