Discuss how we choose to remember the First World War
"HISTORY would be a wonderful thing - if only it were true" - Leo Tolstoy.
As we move further into the four-year commemoration period it would be easy to think that we have reached "peak Anzac".
There would be few Australians who have not heard about or participated in some kind of commemoration activity.
In this post-Gallipoli centenary milieu, it is timely to think about what we are choosing to remember and commemorate.
Which Anzac stories are important to retell and how will a new generation of Australians identify with them?
