On November 27, 1895, Alfred Nobel signed his last will and testament in Paris. Among its four closely-written pages, less than one referred to the donation which was destined to link his name with the supreme achievements of the modern world in science and literature, and the causes for peace.
This 17-minute slide show is based on the book "The Legacy of Alfred Nobel. The Story Behind the Nobel Prizes," written by Ragnar Sohlman, who was named by Alfred Nobel as one of two testators to his will. "The Will" marks the major events and circumstances leading to the awarding of the first Nobel Prizes.
