520    Little is known about those who openly refused to enter 
       military service in World War II because of their 
       convictions against killing. While many of those men 
       accepted alternative civilian service, more than 6,000 
       were incarcerated, with sentences ranging from a few 
       months to five years. Some were tried, convicted, and 
       reimprisoned for essentially the same offense - resisting 
       induction into the armed forces - after their initial 
       release. In A Few Small Candles, ten men tell why they 
       resisted, what happened to them, and how they feel about 
       that experience today. Their stories detail the resisters'
       struggles against racial segregation in prison, as well as
       how they instigated work and hunger strikes to demonstrate
       against other prison injustices. Each of the ten has 
       remained active in various causes relating to peace and 
       social justice.
