Los niños vascos: Basque Children in Yorkshire 1937 ExhibitionThe Peace Museum is pleased to be hosting an exhibition produced by the Basque Children of '37 Association UK which tells the often untold story of child refugees from the Spanish Civil War. These children were encouraged by the Basque government to evacuate their homes and leave their parents to seek sanctuary in Britain after intense bombing, such as at Guernica on the 26th April 1937. 3480 of these children arrived on the 23rd May 1937 at Southampton along with teachers, priests and other assistants. The British government had reluctantly agreed to allow these children to come and seek sanctuary in Britain, but refused to provide any financial assistance in the fear that this would violate the non-intervention pact they had signed, agreeing to not become involved in the Spanish Civil War. The Basque Children's Committee was formed in May 1937 to help with housing and care for these children. Many of these children came to Yorkshire and you can uncover their stories in the exhibition here at the Peace Museum. The exhibition will run from December 2015 to March 2016 and will include a programme of events. More details will follow soon. Group visits and school bookings are welcome to visit the Museum. Various publications and a DVD can also be purchased at the Museum to explore this story further. Please download and distribute the poster with further details of the exhibition. Basque Children Exhibition Poster. For more information contact email@example.com. For further information on the BC'37A visit the website www.basquechildren.org With thanks to the BC'37A for allowing us to host the exhibition.
The blog is a bit late this month due to a very busy month with lots of school visits. November is an eventful month in Peace history; it is on the 20th November 1962 that the Cuban Missile crisis concluded as President John F. Kennedy announced he had lifted the U.S naval blockade of Cuba stating that “the evidence to date indicates that all known offensive missile sites in Cuba have been dismantled.” It was also the month that the Berlin wall was opened up on the 9th November 1989, after standing for 28 years as a symbol of the Cold War. The following year on the 19th – 20th November 1990, the Cold War came to an end during a summit in Paris as leaders of NATO and the Warsaw Pact signed a Treaty on Conventional forces in Europe, vastly reducing their military arsenals. We have many items in our newly set up ‘Responses to Conflict’ exhibit relating to the Cold war including this month’s object of the month. The object is a badge from the 1980s with the words “Don’t register for WWIII the War without winners” written on it. This badge is interesting because it shows the level of fear that people had during the Cold War era. Of course WWIII has never occurred but with heightened tensions between the USA and the USSR, many believed another World War would soon break out, with both sides having the power to release mass nuclear devastation. We also have a card produced in 1998 by Yorkshire CND entitled “Now the Cold War is over, we can all relax”. Making the point that although the Cold War is over, nuclear weapon proliferation is still a major problem in the world today and therefore posing the question “are we really any safer now than we were then?” Is a third World War still possible? Can we ever all relax while nuclear weapons still exist? This is perhaps ever more relevant in the context of the increasingly military response to terrorist groups in the Middle East by Western countries. The Cold War was a state of political and military tension after World War II between powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others) and powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw Pact). Historians do not fully agree on the dates, but 1947–91 is common. The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, although there were major regional wars, known as proxy wars, in Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan supported by the two sides. We also have a large collection of objects relating to these wars in our new Responses to Conflict exhibit which is now open to the public. 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. For more information pay a visit to the museum to see our collection. Seerat Mahmood. Seerat is a current student at Bradford College studying BA (Hons) Education Studies.

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.
