stories of two wars
The stories and memorabilia of some of
Papakura s war veterans are on dis-
play now in the Papakura Museum s
first Anzac exhibition.
Stories from the World War One and
Vietnam will be on display until June
9 in an exhibition called How We
Remember Them commemorating the
90th anniversary of the unveiling of
the Papakura-Karaka First World War
Memorial on June 5, 1921.
A collection of World War One
photographs, uniforms and papers tell
stories of Anzac soldiers at Gallipoli.
Touch screens play interviews
describing the personal experiences of
Vietnam veterans and their families.
Culture and Heritage Ministry oral
historian Claire Hall says the
exhibition s also a chance for Papakura
residents to consider sharing their own
memories and mementos of the
South Auckland has a strong vet-
eran community and many families
will have memories of the Vietnam
era, perhaps stories to share of its
impact in their lives and communi-
ties, she says.
People can put these into the digital
archive at vietnamwar.govt.nz.
Manager Kay Thomas says Papa-
kura Museum and the Culture and
Heritage Ministry will next year pro-
duce an exhibition to mark the end of
the four-year Vietnam history project,
which has recorded 130 veterans, their
wives, partners and children.
She hopes How We Remember Them
will attract people with a story to tell
or memorabilia to contribute for next
year s installation.
