York First World War Day-School: The Anti-War Perspective


Priory Street Centre, York YO1 6ET
10.00am to 4.30pm

The York First World War Day School will provide an alternative to Government plans for a ‘celebration of the national spirit’; and aims to counter romantic, populist, nationalist propaganda; oppose versions of history which serve to facilitate future wars; and offer explanation in place of commemoration. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, to participate in discussion and to argue.
