‘100 stories project‘, Anzac Remembered
The One Hundred Stories are stories that have not been told before. They highlight the experiences of women as well as men, recover the too often forgotten contribution of Indigenous Australians, and emphasise the ongoing cost of war to the community as a whole.
The One Hundred Stories remember not just the men and women who lost their lives but also those who returned to Australia, the gassed, the crippled, the insane, all those irreparably damaged by war. The Great War shaped the world as well as the nation. Its memory belongs to us all. (blurb)
The first 50 stories are available on line; they tell the stories of men at Anzac, based in some cases on material provided by families. Among the first 50 are Sir John Monash, Hugo Throssell VC, The Unknown Patient and a number of men and women who are not household names. The material is suitable for use in schools and was offered to the Anzac Centenary Advisory Board in 2012. The project is managed by Professor Bruce Scates and Dr Damien Williams.
