A FREE exhibition, The Life and Legacy of Emily Hobhouse’s Peace Activism, is on show at the Grange in Street with the Alfred Gillett Trust, until 23rd October.
The exhibition features Emily Hobhouse’s writings, drawings and textiles, and has been funded by the Arts and Humanties Research Council.
Emily Hobhouse is celebrated for her relief work in the concentration camps of the South African War. The touring exhibition reveals her less well-known contribution to international peace, humanitarianism, and South African politics in the post-war period, including her work in Germany following the First World War.
Through her remarkable writings – most vividly her book War Without Glamour – it tells the story of her lifelong commitment to revealing the devastating impact of war on civilians.
