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.
This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists.
In fall 2018, the Archives Gallery will again be a display location for "The World Remembers." Every day from September 12-November 11, 2018 the names of 1,033,167 soldiers and nurses on all sides of the First World War who lost their lives from 1918-1922 will be displayed at more than 60 locations around the world.
The commemoration is a unique expression of remembrance, reconciliation and education, and shows the enormous human cost of the war.
Friends and family of Grebel residents and associates are invited to share the day with us. We are planning a host of activities and events that will give you a sample of the student experience at Grebel. This, of course, includes a great meal and an opportunity to connect with students, staff and faculty.
