In New Zealand we have many museum and galleries. One of the largest is called the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa or ‘Te Papa’ for short. Inside Te Papa there is a huge exhibition called ‘Gallipoli - The Scale of our War.’ It has information about a special battle, the Battle of Gallipoli, that took place during World War I. Many New Zealanders took part and many lost their lives.
The battle started on 25 April 1915. We commemorate this battle every year by celebrating Anzac Day on 25 April. Visit the Gallipoli website. It will give you lots of information about this famous battle. On your blog, tell us three things that you learned about the battle.
- I learnt that during the war soldiers eat what they have (which are hard biscuits and corned beef) they take risk for eating food that may taste disgusting but for their sake of surviving. Unluckily they would have to eat the same food every day.
- I also learnt that war and battling was a terrible thing. Many people died because of wars. I really feel sorry for those who had lost their husbands, uncle’s ,brothers and cousins who have died in the war back in those days.
- Lastly I’ve Learnt that Anzac day Is the day when we remember those who have died in the war.
