Mill Park: Events

Heritage Festival: Westgarthtown and WWI - German Descendants at War and on the Homefront


Join in for the launch of a documentary that juxtaposes the treatment of citizens of German descent in Westgarthtown with the experiences of their relatives who were fighting and dying for Australia during WWI. Descendants of the German settlers of Westgarthtown fought on all battlefronts; some being decorated, others losing their lives, whilst others returned to Australia carrying a heavy burden.

Back at Westgarthtown their relatives were looked at by their neighbours with suspicion. Instead of seeing fellow citizens some saw the enemy. It is an issue that still resonates in Australia today.

Afternoon tea will follow the presentation.

The project was made possible by the Australian Government's ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program.

The National Trust Heritage Festival runs each year in April and May and is a celebration of our shared heritage. Any organisation with an interest in history and heritage can participate. There are hundreds of events happening across the state with the theme of Discovery and Rediscoveries in 2016. To find out more, visit the website.
