Remember & commemorate
This section includes case studies of two prominent people who used their talent and conviction to work as peacemakers and healers in different ways:
- Walter Ashworth, who was a conscientious objector in World War 1, a talented painter and a prosthetics expert, who helped many injured soldiers after World War 1. His Coventry Blitz paintings have helped many appreciate the horrors of that fateful night on 14th November 1941.
- Provost Richard Howard, whose courage in urging people to forgive their enemies, as Jesus taught, led to Coventry becoming the City of Peace and Reconciliation.
Walter Ashworth’s painting of the Coventry Blitz can be used as the focus for a Big Paper exercise.
