Toys, Tales and Tenacity: Childhood experiences of war

Toys, Tales and Tenacity: Childhood experiences of warToys, Tales and Tenacity: Childhood experiences of war

11 August 2023 - July 2024
Shrine of Remembrance

From cherished toy soldiers and adventure comics to immersive cadet training and captivating computer games, children have long engaged in war-like activities that ignite their imagination and spirit.

Through these games, stories, and activities, they navigate a world that can often seem senseless, finding meaning and understanding within the chaos.

While war may have been an indirect experience for many Victorian children, the exhibition also recognises those whose lives were directly affected. Some children faced separation from loved ones, endured hardships and sacrifices, or bore witness to the uncertainty and anxiety that war brings. Their stories are integral to understanding the lasting impact war can have on the formative years of childhood.

Join for an immersive and thought-provoking journey and explore the intertwined stories of war, childhood, and the enduring spirit of youth in the face of adversity.
