Jan Terwey, b. 11 October 1883 at Amsterdam, who in 1903 was the first Mennonite after many decades to refuse to serve in the army, military service having become compulsory in the Netherlands in 1898. This refusal, then a novelty among the Dutch Mennonites, caused some sensation in the brotherhood. Terwey, who was a painter and etcher, and beautifully illustrated a book for children by Cor Bruyn, shortly after 1920 immigrated to Switzerland.
