‘Coming home’ talk by Dr Stephen Clarke (Auckland, 3 July 2019)

During the First World War, 18,000 New Zealanders died and their names are immortalised on local war memorials that are the focal point of remembrance on Anzac Day. But what do we know about those 80,000, often forgotten New Zealanders who survived the war?

Join Dr Stephen Clarke as he discusses the Great Silence about the experience of coming home from the Great War.
