Researching Conscientious Objectors with Valerie Flessati and Cyril Pearce
This session with Cyril Pearce will be an opportunity for anyone who has been researching or telling the story of the First World War resisters, locally or internationally, to share their discoveries. As the First World War centenary draws to a close this is an opportunity to ‘join up the dots’ between CO projects across the UK, and further afield, and to look at the ‘big picture’.
Valerie and Cyril will also look forward and consider future possible projects – including further funding opportunities, blue plaques, a long-term home for the Pearce Register and a national Conscientious Objectors monument proposal.
The session will also be of interest to descendants of WW1 COs and those looking to research COs in the future.
