Conscientious objection

19th May 2006 at 01:00
Pupils studying the First World War should find Refusing to Kill thought-provoking and moving. It is a 68-page study of conscientious objection during the conflict, with fascinating documentary materials, including letters, diaries and transcriptions from tribunals. The booklet examines the roots of objection in differing moral, religious and political beliefs, setting this against the patriotic climate of public opinion and the introduction of conscription. The lives of some objectors are also presented in detail. Refusing to Kill costs pound;15 from Peace Pledge Union.
