An activity guide is available online or by request. The War and Peace in the Pacific 75 Learning Program connects high schools from Australia, the United States and Japan to commemorate the 75th anniversary of WWII in the Pacific and promote international friendship and youth leadership. Students conduct project-based research examining key aspects of WWII in their country and community, discovering untold stories and reinterpreting the past. In 2018 students researched “The Homefront.” This exhibition tells in their own words what they discovered about life at home during WWII in the Pacific.
