Quakers and the 1947 Nobel Peace Prize

December 2017 marked 70 years since the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to two campaigning Quaker organisations on behalf of British and American Quakers. It was a defining moment, to be so publicly recognised on the world stage, but also one that brought up mixed feelings for many Friends. Some argued it shouldn't be accepted at all.

Lisa McQuillan tells the story behind the award on the BYM website. It continues to inspire visitors to the Library in Friends House today.
