Investigating the impact of the Great War on Tasmanians at home and away before during and after WW1. Students will hear Tasmanian stories of Aboriginal soldiers through to pioneering nurses, possible German spies, the threat of white feathers and surgeons fed up with the ravages of war.

The history of World War 1 is about much more than what happened on the Gallipoli Peninsula. One hundred years one what do we remember and what have we forgotten on a war that touched and divided the people of Tasmania?

A TMAG Centre for Learning and Discovery staff member will lead your students through the program that uses artifacts, museum props, costumes and TMAGs unique 'The Suspense is Awful' exhibition.

Last chance for this program for Term 3.
