About this event
Description: 
This traveling exhibit lifts up the stories of religious conscientious objectors—Amish, Quakers, Hutterites, and Mennonites, as well as secular pacifists. It remembers the witness of peace-minded people against the First World War and immerses visitors in the historical experience of witnessing for peace during the war. Showing the prophetic insights and the personal courage of WWI peace protestors suggests parallels to the culture of war and violence we encounter today. The exhibit, developed by Kauffman Museum in North Newton KS, premiered at the World War I Museum in Kansas City KS in the summer of 2017. The Henderson Heritage Museum and Park is open 1 - 4 PM Tuesday - Saturday or by appointment. Call 402.723.4252 Admission is $5.00 and includes access to entire park.
