On May 5th 2015 Peter van den Dungen, Dutch historian of pacifism and general coordinator for the International Network of Museums for Peace gave a lecture on Jan Bloch's contribution to the pacifist thought and the impact of his pursuits on the international movement against military conflict and peaceful resolution of international conflicts. The lecture was received with great interest by a large crowd of Polish researchers, which was reflected in the discussion that followed. During the meeting Ms. Ewa Szczepańska from the Society of the Francis de Sales Orphanage (Bloch gave land and partially financed its construction) presented the history of the institution and in a broader scope the philanthropic activities of the author of "The Future of War".
