War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war. This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.
These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.
Join us as we celebrate the launch of two publications, from two different authors:
11 Encounters with Mennonite Fiction, by Hildi Froese Tiessen
Silentium: And Other Reflections on Memory, Sorrow, Place, and the Sacred, by Connie T, Braun
This event is sponsored by Institute of Anabaptist and Mennonite Studies
