Event Navigation

We have decided to shift our Mennonites at War Speaker Series screening of “The Last Objector” to be an online webinar event. Moving it to an online screening will allow for everyone to be able to participate including the many people that have connected with this series from around the world. The event begins at 7:30pm with a brief introduction followed by a reflection on making the film by director Andrew Wall. There will be a Question and Answer session after the Andrew’s presentation.

The Last Objectors is a TV-Hour (45 min) documentary on Canada’s conscientious objectors of the Second World War – Those who chose to perform alternative service instead of going to war. The CO’s would spend years working in forestry camps, hospitals, asylums and various other positions throughout the country with little pay and no benefits.

Refuge 31 films has given us permission to screen the documentary to all those who register for the webinar. Please note – this session will not be recorded and available after.
