Gabriel Rodriguez's curator insight, January 22, 11:30 AM

Some "fun" facts about the Ancient Egyptians and the way they live.  These were interesting, particularly the thoery that King Tut may have suffered a traumatic injury at the hands of a hippopatamus.  There is always more history to be discovered and it's great to learn more of the past world.

They were only 19 ... and some were even younger

They were only 19 ... and some were even younger | History | Scoop.it
At the  Kranji war memorial yesterday, the Veterans' Affairs Minister, Warren  Snowdon, announced the fast diminishing roll call. While 14,792 Australian  servicemen and nurses were captured by the Japanese in Singapore in 1942, ''only  520 of those brave souls are still with us,'' he said. ''We are fortunate some  of those who survived sit with us here today.''

Laura Dean's insight:

Questions to consider:

 

It has been over 70 years since Singapore was captured in World War Two, resulting in many Australians becoming prisoners of war. Why, as young Australians, is it still so important to remember these events?


One Veteran says despite the passing of many of his comrades, he believes the sacrifices made in Singapore will grow stronger in the minds of Australians when they are all gone. How can young Australians continue to remember these sacrifices?


In the video, one veteran comments on the age of most of the soldiers being only 18, 19, and 20. Could you imagine young Australians of that age today enduring similar conditions to what the veterans endured? What do you think helped to motivate them through the tough times?
