How We Remember: New Zealanders and the First World War

We began with domestic adventure, marching out-of-step into the military camps of Featherston and Trentham. We began with the strangeness of army barracks in the familiar countryside of New Zealand."

–from a soldier's diary in 'You can only imagine' by Hamish Clayton.

About How We Remember
A poem, a waiata, a family photograph, a painting, a half-recalled history lesson, a parade, a name on a plaque in a small town: we remember the First World War in so many ways. These original, insightful essays by a raft of historians, writers and other prominent figures reflect on our different forms of remembering and re-membering, what we have cherished and valued, forgotten and ignored, constructed and reframed.
