Event details

Auckland has a diverse cultural heritage which includes military and civilians recognised with national medals for courage, survival recognition and acknowledgement.

This educational and creative workshop marks 100 years since the end of the First World War, and since Poland regained independence.

  • Find out what links the medals awarded to the Anzac soldiers of the First World War and the Polish children of the Second World War
  • Discover medals... When are medals given? What do they signify to the recipient, and to the families many years later? Whose medals can you wear and when?
  • Watch a presentation and short film clip about the award of the Siberia Cross to one of the Polish 'children' of Pahiatua
  • Design a medal and accompanying booklet, in paper.
