This exhibition looks at how the First World War changed everyday life in New Zealand. From the swell of patriotism to the underlying sense of absence, Home Front explores how some communities pulled together, while others were pulled apart.

This exhibition was gifted to the Papakura Museum by Auckland War Memorial Museum. The content has been altered to give a Papakura & Districts focus.
