Thursday 17 October, 6.30 pm until 8.00 pm: The Forgotten WarAustralia is dotted with memorials to soldiers who fought in wars overseas. Why are there no official memorials or commemorations of the wars that were fought on Australian soil between Aborigines and white colonists? Why is it more controversial to talk about the frontier war now than it was one hundred years ago? Forgotten War continues the story told in Henry Reynolds’ seminal book The Other Side of the Frontier, which argued that the settlement of Australia had a high level of violence and conflict that we chose to ignore. This discussion is particularly timely as we approach the centenary of WWI. Forgotten War, a carefully researched book makes it clear that there can be no reconciliation without acknowledging the wars fought on our own soil. Venue: ELTHAMbookshop, 970 Main Road, Eltham. The cost for the evening is $35.00 and includes a signed copy of the book or a gift voucher, wine and delectable snacks. Prepaid, early bookings are essential: 9439 8700.
