Stories Of Bristol Families In WW1

This event in our programme tells stories of Bristol families in the war – those who argued and organised against war, and, in one case, a soldier who deserted and was shot at dawn. At the same time, it will be an opportunity to reflect on how history is presented and to what extent it is possible to know the whole truth about events 100 years ago..
