Here are a few articles that take a look at the symposium, “Remembering Muted Voices: Conscience, Dissent, Resistance, and Civil Liberties in World War I Through Today” that was held in Kansas City this past weekend. This is a subject not always covered in discussions about World War I but no less important. The sponsors of the program are to be congratulated, and once again the National World War I Museum and Memorial has hosted a program that one might call a less than traditional conference that some museums might shy away from. 250 people were in attendance.
The first is an article from The Mennonite which reviews the symposium: https://themennonite.org/daily-news/conference-explores-breadth-depth-conscientious-objection/
Each registrant received a white poppy. For the significance: http://www.ppu.org.uk/whitepoppy/index.html
A most interesting symposium.
