“Under the Skin 4” – SLQ Fellows’ presentations about the world wars

qanzacfellows-045

I was honoured to present findings of my project, “Queensland Women and War: a multicultural perspective of the experiences of female civilians during World War II”, at a public event at the State Library of Queensland.

To see the full event, featuring the presentations of all four Fellows, go to the SLQ website.

As the final speaker, my segment is in Part 2 (after Dr Martin Kerby) and it commences at the 22-minute mark.

The three case studies are of ordinary women who were “locked up” in the Tatura Internment Camp in Victoria for the duration of WWII. One was a German from Murarrie, one was an Italian from Innisfail, and one was a Japanese from Cairns.

About Debbie Terranova

I write stories of mystery, history, and adventure that will inspire readers to question accepted 'truths' and explore alternative explanations. I call this approach ‘fiction with a conscience’. While settings, historical events, and some characters may be real or based on research, the narratives and central characters are generally the creation of my imagination. I have published four novels, the latest being 'The Bootmaker of Berlin' (WWII historical fiction) released in January 2023.
