  2. Anti-Conscription
    List
    Public

    World War One, also referred to as 'The Great War' had a death toll of approximately 40 million military and civilian people altogether. This high mortality rate came as a shock to those who were convinced to join based on propaganda. This pride and excitement for adventure encouraged young Australians to join the fighting, which terrified mothers as so many had already lost their sons. This is one of the primary reasons why the Anti-Conscription campaigns emerged.

    The Anti-Conscription campaigns in the course of the war emerged from diverse groups and figures, all playing important roles in their various spheres of influence within the Australian community. One was within the trade union movement. Another was within the governing Labor Party itself. A third was amongst women’s groups and organizations. A fourth came from antiwar stances and actions taken by the International Workers of the World (IWW), Australian Socialist Party, and other socialist groups. A fifth was the stand taken by the prominent Catholic prelate, Archbishop Daniel Mannix.

  3. Australian War Brides
    List
    Public

    This list is dedicated to the Australian War Brides who married United States soldiers and therefore relocated to America to live their lives.
    Throughout the twentieth century, American male soldiers returned home from wars with foreign-born wives.

    Between 1944 and 1946, approximately 15,000 young women from all over Australia immigrated to the United States. They were the wives and fiancés of American servicemen based in the Pacific during World War II. It was the largest contingent of women, babies and children ever to leave Australia.

  8. Muriel Knox Doherty
    List

    To what extent did the letters written by Muriel Knox Doherty describe the conditions of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp?

    The question chosen is specifically based on the letters written by Muriel Knox Doherty, who was a distinguished Australian nurse and matron during the recovery period of the second World War, more specifically in relation to the holocaust victims. The question asks whether the information provided in the letters she wrote during her time in Bergen Belsen provided accurate description of the conditions that people (or “inmates”) were living and working in. The source 1 is a primary source newspaper article that provides evidence of Muriel Knox Doherty's significance to the Bergen Belsen Camp. She is portrayed to be keen to assist in the recovery of the inmates who were trapped in the camp during the holocaust.

    Another example of newspaper evidence was source 9 in the list. This source highlights the significance of Doherty’s letters in the recording of the conditions of the inmates in the concentration camps. The newspaper published some of Muriel Knox Doherty’s own words and knowledge to describe to the public, the conditions in which the prisoners were faced with.

    Source 4, Folder 1 contained many letters from Doherty containing valuable information gathered from prisoners who experienced the conditions first hand. For example, I found a story about a Czechoslovak girl who told Muriel that a German Commander intended to evacuate them before the British arrived. The girl gave some information about the conditions of the concentration camps that she experienced first-hand, it included “Arrived at Bergen – Belsen we were surprised by another fearful aspect. Hundreds of trucks with dead and dying men were standing in the railway station – Their bodies were blue & bloody skeletons, the faces wounded, the dirty clothes torn & full of lice. This type of information is highly valuable when understanding the poor quality of life people were put through.

    Source 6, Folder 2 was another collection of Doherty’s letters. She described having to feed the malnourished prisoners as heartbreaking. Other aspects of the conditions such as the environment that they were placed in were described immensely such as the horrific sights and the vulgar odor that she was consistently faced with.

    Source 3, Folder 3 In her letters she also updates her mother on the state of Europe and the constant tension felt by most people, in particular her letter on the 3rd of November 1945 in this source where she discusses how there are many Nazis surrounding them, and how she does not know whether they can be trusted. She states also the dull and dying state of the environment around her “beauty gone & trees baring.” These letters that were written could not be more accurate when describing the experiences of nurses and inmates during the closing of the second world war. Because of her professional status, Doherty’s letters could also be seen as more accurate and less bias.
