“Mennonite Peace Efforts under Communist Observation,” Pastor Bernhard Thiessen, Chairman, Peace Churches Office at the University of Hamburg, Berlin, Germany

May 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In the 1950s and 1960s, workers from Mennonite Central Committee Peace Section, the Puidoux Conferences, and the Christian Peace Conference organizations explored peace issues together in Europe. Their collaborative efforts drew the interest of the East German Protestant theologian Gerhard Bassarak, who worked for the East German Secret Police under the codename “Buss,” and of other theologians who worked with the East German section of the Christian Peace Conference and the Stasi.

Pastor Thiessen will explore this phenomena and other work related to the pop-up exhibit “Mennonites in East Germany,” on display May 18-20, 2023.
