Henry Hodgkin, a British Quaker and Friedrich Siegmund-Schultze a German chaplain to the Kaiser founded The International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) on the eve of World War I. These men refused to let the impending hostilities threaten their friendship. Their Christian opposition to war and desire to build a new and better world launched the IFOR that has worked for peace and nonviolence around the world for over 90 years. It has many international chapters that have played prominent roles in nonviolent campaigns, including the U.S civil rights movement and training and support for the Philippines People Power movement. In the 1940s, IFOR member André Trocmé helped save thousands of Jews from the Nazi Holocaust.
