IFOR Founded

After the end of war, in 1919, the deported Kees Boeke and Henry Hodgkin met in Holland, where they decided to organize the first international conference, which led to the formation of “Movement towards a Christian international” (Christian international), which later became the “International Fellowship of Reconciliation.” The conference was held in Boekes house in the town of Bilthoven where 50 pacifists from ten different countries met.

Bishop Paul Jones helped the Fellowship of Reconciliation become international in 1919, and moved to New York and became its secretary for a decade.
