Illuminating their stories

IMAG0127 (Small)

To coincide with the centenary of Anzac, Five Dock Library is displaying photographs and memorabilia of local soldiers who served in the First World War.

A highlight of the display are videos produced as part of the ‘More than just a name’ project which can be viewed on the touch top table in the Young Adult area. The videos were prepared by local students from Five Dock Public School, Concord Public School and Concord High School. The Young Adult area has photographs of some of the soldiers in light boxes. The mixture of formal studio photographs and informal images are complemented by panels which tell their stories.

The display continues at Five Dock Library until the end of April. The ‘More than just a name’ videos can also be viewed online. Some of the videos will also be shown, along with the film War Horse, at Anzac Remembrance Under the Stars, at St Alban’s Church Grounds, Great North Road, 17 April 2015, 6-9.30pm.
