Fremantle and War: online exhibition
To commemorate Australia's centenary of World War One, this online exhibition (summarised here in video format) pauses to consider powerful moments in Fremantle's experience of war. This exhibition, and others about Fremantle, can be found at www.fremantlehistory.com.au.
Uncovering some of the nation's most precious images, students at the University of Notre Dame Australia have looked at the many elements of Fremantle's war history including the colonial frontier, departure of troops, home front experiences, dissent and refuge. These pictures come from some of the nation's leading private and public archives. The exhibition was produced by the University of Notre Dame Australia with assistance in setting up the website coming from the City of Fremantle.
