    The World Peace Congress featured here took place on 20 April 1949.

    "Archimendrich Nicholas" in text and tags should read Archimandrite Nicholas.

    Referring to the final paragraph in the shots list, I'm pretty sure Picasso didn't attend the event, but he certainly created the poster for the event, featuring a dove.
