Honest History’s David Stephens on 6PR Perth Drive with Adam Shand

Adam Shand on 6PR looked at issues to do with travel to Turkey, in the wake of DFAT upgrading travel alerts. He put questions to HH’s David Stephens about commemoration and appropriateness. Among other things, Stephens said that, if Anzac was indeed Australia’s secular religion, it was OK to be an atheist or an agnostic about it. Also that people needed to distinguish between comforting myths (like the ‘Ataturk words’) and evidence-based history. Shand also made some useful points about the issues.

More from DFAT.
