Sites of Nonresistance.

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.

Thursday, July 12, 2018 (all day) to Friday, October 5, 2018 (all day) to Friday, October 5, 2018 (All day)

The World Remembers

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.

Saturday, September 15, 2018 — 3:00 PM EDT

This illustrated talk will look at the 1850 Brubacher House in the context of the University of Waterloo’s 1000-acre campus, explaining its historical role as a Mennonite farmhouse, the reasons for its preservation, and the role of the Region of Waterloo, the University, and the Mennonite community in its restoration.
