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.

The Orie O. Miller Diary, 1920-21

The First World War and tumultuous events in Russia form the backdrop to Orie O. Miller's diary of 1920-1921. Representing the newly-formed Mennonite Central Committee, twenty-eight-year-old Miller was one of three American Mennonites who set sail in 1920 to bring relief to fellow Mennonites in war-torn Russia.
