At a time when events in the Ukraine have brought to the fore attitudes to the role of Russia in world affairs, the Australian War Memorial happens to be hosting a number of talks highlighting Soviet World War II propaganda posters, notably those produced by the TASS newsagency. The talks are in association with an exhibition of these posters, showing for the first time in Australia.
The talks are later this month and in August. Details: TASS talks flier (3) . The posters will be on display at the Memorial until February 2015. The display will give some welcome context to Australian World War II memorabilia at the Memorial.
