In wartime

For 4 years, Mons endured German occupation while her sons fought along the Yser river. One man, Henri La Fontaine chose exile in order to continue his pacifist campaign against war. The founder of the Mundaneum would be active on all fronts, both during and after the conflict, waging a war against war.
