Constructive Spirit

$ 10.00

In the chaotic aftermath of WWI, the newly formed American Friends Service Committee sent a team of six women to join their British counterparts who were helping refugees fleeing from Poland into Russia. Quaker workers stayed on through the famine and the early years of the Bolshevik revolution, providing innovative relief and reconstruction programs, all the while witnessing to Friends testimonies. Includes dramatic firsthand narratives of their courageous adventures and examines America's responses to the emerging communist nation and issues of service, advocacy, and witness that Quaker organizations are still trying to balance today.
