Funk, Henry H.

  • Not all the conscientious objectors were interested in forestry work. Many felt that they had the ability to be of service elsewhere.

  • Abram J. Thiessen also worked at Pickle Crow gold mines.

  • A young man stands before the judge. The judge reads the sentence – “Six months hard labour!” – and bangs his gavel to dismiss the court.

  • Henry H. Funk is very grateful that Canada allowed Mennonites and other pacifists to do alternative service.

  • All people deserve to be treated with kindness and compassion, including those with a physical or mental illness.
