Wounded, a temporary exhibition at The Great War Exhibition, highlights the effects of First World War conflict on injured service people.
During World War One, 41,000 wounds to New Zealand soldiers were treated. Some of these were people who were wounded more than once, or later died.
Wounded is the latest in a series of seven temporary exhibitions called Chapters of the Great War, created by Story Inc. This short audio-visual experience uses voices of nurses, soldiers, and doctors to portray the impact of injuries on survivors and those who tended them.
Wounded recently featured in the Dominion Post and several community newspapers across the Wellington area. The full article appears here on stuff.co.nz and the exhibition was also covered on TVNZ here.
Wounded is open until Sunday 16 June 2017 at 6 p.m. More information is available here.
