It was an adventure. It was hard work. It was hot. It was dirty. Some lost their lives. But for those 1200 men, two years of hard labor in foreign countries changed their lives forever.
Between 1951 and 1976 some 1200 young men refused to join the military. Their religious beliefs forbade their taking another human life. Instead, they volunteered to build homes for WWII refugees, taught Africa subsistence farmers modern farming methods, helped Greek villages preserve food for the winter months, and built a road through the Green Hell of the Paraguayan Chaco. They did this through an alternative service program called PAX, serving 40 countries by and large. This program features the Pax work in Germany, Austria, Greece, Paraguay and the Congo. Black & white. Approx. 43 minutes.
