Shell-shocked: Australia after Armistice

The Whitlam Institute presents a new touring exhibition from the National Archives of Australia, revealing the legacy of sorrow endured by thousands of Australians following World War I. The exhibition is accompanied by Mapping our Anzacs, an innovative and popular website encouraging users to explore the collection and create and share content.

Shell-shocked: Australia after Armistice explores the personal impact of war on Australian men, women and children, and the nation's attempts to recover from the loss or injury of almost three-quarters of its soldiers serving overseas. It shows how the nation channelled its grief into public commemoration, honouring the fallen with national monuments and ubiquitous small town memorials.

The exhibition features photographs, personal letters, service files and memorabilia from the National Archives collection.

Mapping our Anzacs presents information on servicemen and their communities in a fundamentally different way, using Google Maps technology. Visitors can explore some of the Archives most popular records and add personal photos, letters and other mementos using the online scrapbook.
