Launched on March 29 2015, #AnzacLive is an innovative and often confronting experience. People today can 'talk' in real time with those who served in the war via Facebook, and follow their experiences taken directly from diary entries as they occur.
It is the centerpiece of News Corp Australia’s World War I commemorative campaign. State Library staff have contributed their knowledge and expertise to the #AnzacLive project, and four of the nine diarists featured are from the Libray's collections: Archie Barwick, Ellis Silas, Hector Brewer and Charles Laserson. The full diaries and transcripts are available via the Library's catalogue.
