Even though it had happened several times since the establishment of the Nobel Prize Committee, did you know that there are years where there are no Nobel Peace Prize winners?

Yes, it is true that it had happened several times since the Nobel Prize Committee had been giving their prestigious prizes out that there are years where no one – or an organization – got awarded with a Nobel Peace Prize. Even though U.S. President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize back in 2009, strangely, President Obama’s detractors who say that he didn’t deserve the Nobel Peace Prize “mysteriously” never seem to know that there are years where the Nobel Peace Prize was never given out.
Those years where the Nobel Peace Prize was never given out first occurred from 1914 to 1916, which has probably something to do with no one trying to stop the outbreak of World War I and also in 1918. Other years where there are no Nobel Peace Laureates are 1928 and 1932. No Nobel Peace Prizes were also issued during 1939 to 1943, which has probably also something to do with no one person or organization trying to stop the outbreak of World War II.
No Nobel Prizes were also awarded in the year 1948 and also during 1955 and 1956. And the last ever year in the 20th Century where no Nobel Peace Prizes were given out was in 1966. And from then on, not a single Nobel Peace Prize-free year went by. Despite scores of Nobel Peace Prize free years, President Obama’s detractors never proposed that 2009 should be a Nobel Peace Prize free year.
