125 Elliot Street Howick Auckland New Zealand
Talk: Journey of Survival
this event is part of Auckland Heritage Festival 2019. #AKLHeritage
Join us for a talk, illustrating the remarkable journey of 733 Polish children and 102 adult caregivers who were deported from their homeland to Russia.
They then travelled to Persia under the protection of the Allies and later arrived in the safe haven of New Zealand, all during World War 2.
You are welcome to stay on and linger at the museum… enjoy the many colourful displays: costumes, tapestries and stamps; discover many ‘Famous Poles’.
Copies of books and DVDs by and about members of this Polish group will be available for purchase afterwards.
Museum entry by donation. No booking required.
Groups by prior arrangement – fee applies.
Howick is a destination that offers variety including Howick beach, Stockade Hill, various Fencible sites and historical walks, All Saints Church, Uxbridge Creative Arts, Te Tui Gallery and Howick Historical Village.
