Working with local teachers & educators Remembering The Real World War 1 have created online materials about World War 1 conscientious objectors for teachers to use.
The online resources include material for primary and secondary school or college and are relevant to a range of subjects (in particular, history, religious education, citizenship, the humanities more generally and may provide the basis of project work). Resources include PPT presentations for lessons, history cards and primary sources (photos, newspapers, newsletters, leaflets, audio oral history, and letters and sketches from CO prisoners). These materials are backed up with links to secondary sources (including papers, books and pamphlets, audio and video of history talks, walks and historical recreations) and to external websites.
Based on the ‘Refusing to Kill’ exhibition and booklet,the material is on the Bristol Radical History Group website – follow the links here. Have a look and pass the link on to any teachers you know.
The ‘Refusing To Kill’ booklet is still available to buy – follow the links here.
In coming months BRHG plans to add new material online relating to slavery, Edward Colston & Bristol’s workhouses.
