Passchendaele, known today as Passendale, is a village in Belgium. It is a long way from New Zealand. During World War 1 it was on the Western Front where German and Allied soldiers fought to break through each other’s trench lines. In 1917 New Zealand soldiers fought in two of several battles to try to advance the Allied line so the Allies could capture the high ground of Passchendaele from the Germans. Passchendaele was New Zealand’s greatest human catastrophe. It affected more Kiwi families than any other single event in history. Passchendaele was important to New Zealand identity, culture and organisation. It helped Kiwis develop a sense of themselves as a nation. Although New Zealand soldiers were asked to do the impossible, none fought more bravely than them. Passchendaele was an important place and environment. Its mud and carnage became a symbol for the horror of war. The area around it was one of the most shelled places on the planet. Today farmers still dig up skeletons and weapons – the harvest of bones and the harvest of iron. Many Kiwi soldiers lie in unmarked graves. Passchendaele was and is an example of continuity and change. The battles there were events with causes and results. The ideas and actions of New Zealand’s heroes at Passchendaele helped shape and continue to help shape New Zealand society.

Gallipoli is a peninsula in the European part of Turkey. It is a long way from New Zealand. In 1915, during World War 1, thousands of Allied soldiers invaded Gallipoli. As part of the invading Anzacs, New Zealand soldiers landed in April and were evacuated in December. Their diaries described Gallipoli as hell on Earth, but they also mentioned some funny events, friends they made, and the bravery of men they fought alongside. Gallipoli was important to New Zealand's identity, culture and organisation. It helped Kiwis develop a sense of themselves as a nation. Today that nation holds fast to Anzac Day, the day of invasion. Gallipoli was an important place and environment. Turks there fought to defend their homeland. Anzacs fought Turks and the environment. Today the Gallipoli Peninsula Historical National Park honours the many thousands of soldiers who died there. It is a place of peace to which visitors from all over the world come. Gallipoli was and is an example of continuity and change. The battle there was an event with causes and results. The ideas and actions of New Zealand's heroes at Gallipoli helped shape and continue to help shape New Zealand society.
