We Will Not Kill: Conscientious Objectors of the First World War

An illustrated talk by Ann Kramer
Free
This talk uncovers the 16,000 or more men who, on grounds of conscience, refused to pick up arms and fight during the First World War. Were they cowards and shirkers or were they men of great courage? We will look at who these men were, why they took such an unpopular stand and how they were treated.
Ann Kramer is a writer and historian. Her most recent book: Conscientious Objectors of the First World War: A Determined Resistance will be published Nov 14
