New website to preserve PNG history

A new website has been launched to preserve the memories and stories of Papua New Guineans during World War II.

Voices from the War is an oral history collection of interviews with men and women from six provinces in PNG about their own, or their relatives', experiences of the war.

The oral history project and website was developed by Deakin University in collaboration with PNG’s National Museum and Art Gallery.

Launched on Friday as part of the International Museum Day, the website links with this year’s theme “Hyper-connected museums: New approaches, new publics” by combining traditional and modern ways of communicating”.

The Voices from the War website can be accessed at
