Anzac Stories is a series of six documentary vignettes in which family members pay tribute to their loved ones whose stories are featured at the acclaimed National Anzac Centre in Albany, Western Australia.
The Centre is one of Australia’s most important cultural pilgrimages. It overlooks King George Sound from where nearly 40,000 Australians and New Zealanders departed by convoy for the battlefields.
Anzac Stories covers a range of wartime experiences including those of an army chaplain, nursing sister and military commander. We follow their remarkable journeys from enlistment to the battlefields and life after the war.
The Anzac Stories series and study guide are suitable for primary and secondary students, for use as a stand-alone classroom activity or with a visit to the National Anzac Centre. They are designed to support the Australian History curriculum, particularly for Years 5, 6, 9 and 10.
