Against War: Conscientious Objectors in World War I

More than 100 conscientious objectors died during the World War I and thousands were imprisoned simply for standing up for what they believe in. But their plight led to reforms in human rights and imprisonment laws, thus cementing their place in twentieth-century history. Ben Copsey, project officer for the 'Objecting to War' project, will discuss the lives and stories of men who refused to go to war and the consequences they faced.
