Red Poppies and the White Waratah; Heroines of the Great War in Wollondilly

Her War, is an exhibition about the women behind the patriotic push to support the British Empire in WW1. Objects used are re-examined for their power to persuade. Family letters and postcards often reveal the confusions and contradictions in the lives of families in small towns and villages in Wollondilly during and after this war.
The book Red Poppies and the White Waratah vividly describes the stories of our local heroines from original research.
