This intergenerational interview tells the story of two men who fought on opposite sides during World War One and their eventual connection through the next generation in New Zealand.
Student Sam Mclaren interviews his grandmother Noelene Mercer who recounts the story and shares her family history.
“I saw an opportunity to to include something I am really passionate about, my family’s history. I believe my Nana is very proud of not just me but my team also. Noelene said that one day I would be able to show this to my children and show them their family history”.
“In the end it is not the war itself we remember but the stories of countless men and women”.
