With chillingly drawn links to present day conflicts, this exhibition explores the lesser known aspects of the First World War. Auckland Central City Library, 13 April - 31 May 2017.
An examination of the political climate in New Zealand at the time, including widespread opposition to the 1909 introduction of Compulsory Military Training, sets the scene for how the war played out for those New Zealanders who, for ethical, religious or political reasons, did not choose to be a part of this conflict.
As an exploration of the myriad reasons history has taught us to avoid war, this pro-peace exhibition is not to be missed.
