Our/Your War Stories

Our/Your War Stories

The digital collection Our/Your War Stories has been created by the State Library of New South Wales in Sydney. This digital collection has as its focus diaries and letters written during the First World War by men and women serving with the Australian forces. On this website you can read transcriptions of diaries and letters, or listen to recorded extracts of them. You can also choose from preset themes – e.g. animals, daily life, prisoners of war, children, love and frienship – to look for a particular subject. Only half of the diaries and letters brought together has been transcribed, the general public is asked to help transcribing them in a crowdsourcing project. There are sections for teachers, a reading list and an overview of links to websites with related projects.
