Astonishing

Megan Spencer has covered so much ground and so many interesting topics in this series. From the deeply personal to untold or forgotten stories surrounding Australia’s history of war and those who fought it. The knowledge passed about the indigenous contributions makes it worthwhile alone, not to mention visiting sites in Europe and Australia while telling her story.

Thank you

Episode 3 has further inspired me to continue my research: I think my grandfather was gassed in a similar attack at a similar time and place. I have his letters to my grandmother, unread for to the best of my knowledge, since the war.
One day opening them and following the path within will be my own personal ‘exercise in historical empathy’.
Thank you
Amanda
