Dr. Fritz Kuiper of Amsterdam, Holland (left), and Dr. Walter Quiring of Rosthern converse in front of a building

No. 1 in a 2nd set of numbered photos from the 6th Mennonite World Conference held in 1957 in Karlsruhe, Germany. Corny J. Rempel, a delegate to the conference, took photos and sent them with explanations to Frank H. Epp, editor of the CM. Rempel's explanations are included in the memos for each photo and a copy of them is included in this envelope. Following the photo explanations, Rempel tells Epp that he is also sending photos to "The Rundschau," a German language Mennonite newspaper. In No. 1, used in the CM 5-36-7, Dr. Fritz Kuiper of Amsterdam, Holland (left), and Dr. Walter Quiring of Rosthern converse in front of a building with columns (probably where the meetings were held?). Dr. Kuiper spoke on: "The Challenge of the world to the church." The series continues to 2010-14. 493. The photos are very brittle, some are fragmented and some are missing. Therefore, the photos are in plastic sleeves in the envelopes.
