On November 27, 1895, a year before his death, 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, says Nobelprize.org about the origin of Nobel Prize.
