On the 28th June 1919 exactly five years after the assassination of Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand, the Treaty of Versailles was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles near Paris. This ended the state of war between Germany and the Allied Powers. Although the Armistice was signed on 11 November 1918, ending the actual fighting, it took six months of negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference to conclude the Peace Treaty. Negotiations between the Allied powers started on 18 January in the Salle de l'Horloge at the French Foreign Ministry on the Quai d'Orsay in Paris. Initially, 70 delegates from 27 nations participated in the negotiations. The defeated nations of Germany, Austria, and Hungary were excluded from the negotiations. Russia was also excluded because it had negotiated a separate peace (the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk) with Germany in 1918. At first a "Council of Ten" comprising two delegates each from Britain, France, the United States, Italy and Japan decided the peace terms. However, it became the "Big Four" when Japan dropped out and the top person from each of the other four nations met in 145 closed sessions to make all the major decisions to be ratified by the entire assembly. Apart from Italian issues, the main conditions were determined at personal meetings among the leaders of the "Big Three" nations: British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau, and American President Woodrow Wilson. The minor nations attended a weekly "Plenary Conference" that discussed issues in a general forum, but made no decisions. These members formed over 50 commissions that made various recommendations, many of which were incorporated into the final treaty. On 7 May, the treaty was presented to Germany. For most of the allies the treaty had created a just peace which weakened Germany, secured the French border against attack and created an organisation to ensure future world peace, to be called the League of Nations. Yet the backlash in Germany against the Treaty was enormous. She was stripped of 13 per cent of her territory and ten per cent of her population; the border territories of Alsace and Lorraine were returned to France. Germany lost all of her colonies, 75 per cent of her iron ore deposits and 26 per cent of her coal and potash. The size of the army and navy was drastically cut, and an air force and submarines were forbidden. The Germans also had to officially accept ‘war guilt’ and pay reparations of around £6,600 million When faced with the conditions dictated by the victors, including the so-called "War Guilt Clause", von Brockdorff-Rantzau (Foreign Minister for Germany) replied to Clemenceau, Wilson and Lloyd George: "We know the full brunt of hate that confronts us here. You demand from us to confess we were the only guilty party of war; such a confession in my mouth would be a lie." Because Germany was not allowed to take part in the negotiations, the German government issued a protest against what it considered to be unfair demands, and a "violation of honour", soon afterwards withdrawing from the proceedings of the peace conference. Germans of all political shades denounced the treaty—particularly the provision that blamed Germany for starting the war—as an insult to the nation's honour. They referred to the treaty as "the Diktat", dictated peace, since its terms were presented to Germany on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. In June 1919, the Allies declared that war would resume if the German government did not sign the Treaty that they had agreed to among themselves. The Government headed by Philip Scheidemann - Germany's first democratically elected head of government, was unable to agree on a common position, and Scheidemann himself resigned rather than agree to sign the treaty. In a passionate speech before the National Assembly on 21 March 1919, he called the treaty a "murderous plan" and exclaimed, “Which hand, trying to put us in chains like these, would not wither? The treaty is unacceptable.” Gustav Bauer, the head of the new government, sent a telegram stating his intention to sign the treaty if certain articles were withdrawn, including articles 227, 230 and 231. In response, the Allies issued an ultimatum stating that Germany would have to accept the treaty or face an invasion of Allied forces across the Rhine within 24 hours. On 23 June, Bauer capitulated and sent a second telegram with a confirmation that a German delegation would arrive shortly to sign the treaty. Then on 28 June 1919, the peace treaty was signed. The treaty had clauses ranging from war crimes, the prohibition on the merging of Austria with Germany without the consent of the League of Nations, freedom of navigation on major European rivers, to the returning of a Koran to the King of Hedjan. It is now strongly believed that the harsh treatment of Germany in the forming of the Treaty of Versailles was one of the major causes of the Second World War. The copy of the Treaty This copy of the Treaty of Versailles was in possession of the Labour Party following the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 and was given to Meredith Farrar Titterington. Meredith was born in Bradford and started his working life aged eleven as a mill-boy in a dyeworks. He went on to study at night school and in 1909 won a scholarship to Ruskin College, Oxford. On completing his studies he worked for the trade union ‘Amalgamated Society of Stuff and Woollen Warehousemen’ and in 1915 became General Secretary. During the war period 1914 – 18 he was on the War Council. He was a member of the Labour Party and was elected to Bradford Council in 1919, becoming an alderman in 1929 and Lord Mayor of Bradford in 1939 – 1940. He was elected the Member of Parliament for Bradford South in the 1945 General Election, but died in office on 28 October 1949. His funeral service was held at Bradford Cathedral and was taken by the Provost of Bradford, the Very Rev. J. G Tiarks. In his address the Provost said they were saying goodbye to a life well spent in the public service. That idea, and the great regard in which he was held, was reflected in the many mourners who included Members of Parliament, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Bradford, members and officers of the City Council, his own Labour Party as well as those from across the political spectrum, the Cooperative Movement and Trade Unions and representatives from many areas of the local community in Bradford. The Treaty was later passed on by his daughter to a close friend, Audrey Wilkinson, an art teacher at Wyke Manor School. She in turn gave it to Martin Bland, a history teacher at Wyke Manor and later Salt Grammar to be used with his history students. As a result this copy has always been in the hands of Bradford residents and, supporters or members of the Labour Party. It has now been donated by Martin Bland to the Peace Museum in Bradford as the anniversary of that flawed peace approaches, in the hope that it will be used by visitors and students, and is given in memory of Meredith Farrar Titterington, an advocate of peace. Exhibition Staff here at the Peace Museum have been working very hard to put together a new exhibition in our temporary exhibition space to replace the previous ‘Basque Children in Yorkshire Exhibit.’ The new exhibit will be entitled ‘A force for peace? The History of European Co-operation,’ and will include our newly acquired copy of The Treaty of Versailles. The exhibition seeks to explore the troubled past of Europe and how European nations have overcome difficulties and difference which led to conflict. The exhibition is set to open in May and run until July of this year. We will also be putting on a special evening event on Thursday 12th May 5:30pm till 7:30pm. There will be a drinks reception, followed by an introduction to the exhibition, a viewing, and an informal discussion about European cooperation and the upcoming referendum. The event will be part of the nationwide Museums at Night event. If you wish to attend please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org Written By Sarah Bartey

NEW “Responses to Conflict Exhibition” opening in NovemberIf you have visited the museum in recent weeks or you have been following our updates on social media, you may have already heard about our new exhibition. It is now open to view, with some additions still to be made, in what was our World War One (WWI) room. This is due to many of our objects from this exhibition being used for the offsite ‘Choices’ exhibition at the Bradford playhouse, also due to open in November. The theme of our new exhibition is responses to conflict and contains objects from the two World Wars, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Iraq War and the war in Afghanistan. Some of our objects include: a traditional wicker basket which is also featured in our October ‘Object of the Month’ blog. The basket belonged to a lady called Frances Mackeith who bought it upon the announcement of WWII in the United Kingdom. Frances was an active campaigner for more than 50 years and took the basket with her on all her peace campaigns. We also have a collection of satirical cartoons relating to the Cold War, a fragment of the Berlin Wall and a splinter from a dismantled SS23 Soviet missile and many more interesting objects. The museum is open every Thursday from 10:00 to 16:00. Whether you’ve been to the museum before or not, now is a very exciting time to come on down for a visit to us here at the Peace Musuem and explore our exhibits old and new.
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and Women’s rights The time of the year is nearly approaching to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the WILPF. In April 1915 a congregation of women from a range of backgrounds and cultures gathered together in an International Congress in The Hague as a reaction to the end of the First World War and to protest against war in the future. This was when the WILPF was founded in 1915 and it is still ongoing. Women raised issues such as equality, rights for women, justice and freedom. These are what the WILPF have set their aims on in order to free women to work in peace and to participate in decision making. Many programmes are being undertaken such as ‘The Human Rights Programme’ and ‘The Gender, Peace and Security Programme’ to fulfil their mission. As well as this you can get yourself involved by sponsoring, donating or by being a member. For more information you can click on the link below: http://www.wilpfinternational.org/get-involved/ Women’s rights are about women having the same rights as men. Feminists have fought for many rights which have made women’s lives much easier in today’s society. Votes for women, being part of the election, owning a property, equal pay to men’s, being able to work and be involved in the decision making process were all fought for. This has created independence ensuring women no longer have to rely on their husbands for money and other social aspects. Times have changed in much of the world and huge reforms have been made for women in today’s society, even though there are still many stereotypes that exist. Women are now able to work outside of the home with the rights to a wage, as well as achieving full time education. However, this is unfortunately still not the case for women in some countries; therefore the WILPF and other women’s organisations remain important. We have a range of items in our collection which specify women as peacemakersThis booklet was produced on September 6th October 2006 to attend an exhibition held at Newsroom, the Guardian and Observer Archive. A group of Welsh women known as ‘Women for Life on Earth’ arrived at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in Berkshire on September 5th 1981. They marched to Cardiff with the intention to debate about the location of the 96 Cruise missiles there. When they arrived they conveyed a letter to the Base Commander which was one of the things stated ‘We fear for the future of all our children and for the future of living world which is the basis of all life’. This pack consists of eleven bookmarks with an illustration and text in Japanese and English and a coloured ribbon attached. It was published by Grassroots House in Kochi, Japan. The museum highlights article 9 of the Japanese constitution which renounces war ‘Lets grow trees of peace’. In the mid-19th century, young people from Kochi have been visiting to Europe to learn about new thinking which is why the area has always been orientated. From the above statement (image) you can see that women really wanted peace as well as gaining justice and equality. Women have often felt invisible and have been treated like a robot. They have often been excluded from the political, social and economic aspects of society. These badges symbolise peace. The badges consist of two Campaigns for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) which is a well-known symbol indicating peace and in Britain it stands for nuclear disarmament. There are two badges with a symbol of CND which states ‘Pensioners for peace’. One of the badges highlights ‘Give Peace a Chance’ which again has a symbol of CND. The wooden white dove represents peace, appreciating simple things in life as well as signifying qualities of home, security and maternal characters. Aiding to find inner peace by meditation and by deep breathing. The ‘Green Peace’ badge of a white dove carrying an olive branch specifies the rainforest being demolished. The olive branches are being used for palm oil which is destroying the forest. The green badge, an illustration of a dove with a pound sign which states ‘Peace Tax Campaign’. This badge clearly shows that taxes were being paid for the war. It aims legal rights to conscientious objection to taxes and for it to be spent on peacebuilding rather than spending it in the war. Badges have been a long been used to highlight different campaigns. We have many badges on display in the museum that relate to women’s rights and other important issues.

The Peace Museum is very proud to have loaned The V&A one of its fantastic banners for its exhibition 'Disobedient Objects'. The exhibition, which was launched on 26th of July, runs until the 1st of February 2015. "From a Suffragette tea service to protest robots, this exhibition will be the first to examine the powerful role of objects in movements for social change. It will demonstrate how political activism drives a wealth of design ingenuity and collective creativity that defy standard definitions of art and design. Disobedient Objects will focus on the period from the late 1970s to now, a time that has brought new technologies and political challenges. On display will be arts of rebellion from around the world that illuminate the role of making in grassroots movements for social change: finely woven banners; defaced currency; changing designs for barricades and blockades; political video games; an inflatable general assembly to facilitate consensus decision-making; experimental activist-bicycles; and textiles bearing witness to political murders." http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/disobedient-objects/disobedient-objects-about-the-exhibition/ The banner on loan to The V&A is a 'Greenham Common Women's Peace Group' banner made by Thalia Campbell. This banner is very apt for this exhibition as Martin Roth, Director of the V&A explains: "This exhibition celebrates the creative 'disobedience' of designers and makers who question the rules. It shows that even with the most limited of resources, ordinary people can take design into their own hands. This is a brae and unusual exhibitions; these are brave and unusual designers. We are proud to present their work".The exhibition is FREE and takes places in the Porter Gallery of The V&A. The V&A is open daily from 10.00 until 17.45 (22.00 on Fridays). The exhibition will tour after the exhibition at The V&A. Watch this space for details of temporary venues. The exhibition is supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, a donor-advised fund of The London Community Foundation.

HARRY ROBERTS' BADGE Saturday 28 June is Armed Forces Day. The Peace Museum will be open for visitors and has a stall at City park as part of Bradford Council's commemorative event. Find our stall to find out about the three types of poppies, Bradford COs and soldiers in WWI. Visit the Museum to explore our new WWI Choices gallery.Our object of the fortnight this week is the badge of the Bradford Pals, a group within the West Yorkshire Regiment in the First World War. The badge is from the uniform of Harry Roberts, a decorated solider from the war who afterwards refused to discuss his experience at war. The ‘logo’ of the West Yorkshire Regiment was a horse. Many horses from Bradford were sent to France and other areas to be used in the cavalry or to aid in other ways, such as carrying supplies. The Bradford Pals produced a journal, ‘The Tyke’, whilst they were at war, and it contains the story of a horse known as 'Spare Parts' used by the soldiers in the regiment. This badge is on display in the new WWI Choices gallery with more of Harry's personal effects, documenting his time in the Pals, his bravery and awards. ‘Spare Parts, never was a name so well deserved’. The story of Spare Parts echoes the story of Joey, the fictional horse that is the main star of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse. This month, the Museum has been running poppy workshops prior to some performances of War Horse at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford. The workshops have focused around the Purple Poppy which remembers animals who have died or been injured in conflict, along with the traditional Red Poppy of remembrance and the White Poppy which calls to end all wars. Spare parts could be described as a horse that shouldn’t be loved, hence his name. In ‘The Tyke’ he is lovingly described as a bit of an ugly horse, with a lazy docile persona, rarely opening his one eye. Tales of troop experiences regularly featured in the Tyke, one tells of how an inexperienced rider was put off for life after a ride with Spare Parts, who in the end, felt so sorry for the horse, he dismounted and walked the rest of the way, thinking his weight was to blame for his poor health. The story of Spare Parts ends sadly. He was eventually reclaimed by his old fighting regiment in the Cavalry, meaning he would have to go back into battle. He received the news like a ‘Derby Winner’, proudly waving his tail and opening his one glorious eye. There was not a dry eye in the Bradford Pals Battalion; all knew his fate. The story ends with ‘Hush: ‘Spare Parts’ is asleep’. He may have been an odd looking horse, if he could even pass as a horse, but he was loved by many. This shows how the big part these horses played in the lives of the soldiers at war; Spare Parts gave them entertainment and companionship. The tale of Spare Parts was very similar to other horses that were sent off to war. Just like the soldiers who bravely gave their lives for their country in the War, this why today the Purple Poppy exists to remember the sacrifice of these many animals. It wasn’t just horses that were used in the War to help the armed forces, but also dogs and carrier pigeons, with many of these being killed or harmed. Even today animals serve alongside the armed forces. Highly trained sniffer dogs are used to find bombs and landmines, such as in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. These are crucial; they often save the lives of the soldiers in their regiment by finding the bomb before it detonates. Do animals have a choice as to whether they want to serve or not? Is it just as important to remember the service animals as well as the people? By Shannen Lang. Shannen is the Education and Collections Intern at the Peace Museum and a student at the University of Leeds. Shannen has lead the Museum's Stories in Stone project which has uncovered the untold stories of COs buried at Undercliffe cemetery, as part of the Choices project. Visit http://choicesthenandnow.co.uk/untold-stories/stories-in-stone/ for more details about the project.
