The Parliament of New South Wales is marking the Centenary with a free public exhibition titled 'Politics & Sacrifice: NSW Parliament and the Anzacs'

Through a display of photographs, books, newspaper articles, propaganda and records from the Parliamentary and other collections, the exhibition will explore some of the political aspects of the war; from the conscription referendum campaigns to the treatment of dissenters and so-called enemy subjects. 

The exhibition will also tell the stories of the members and staff who served as soldiers, officers and medical personnel in campaigns at Gallipoli and the Western Front.

Politics & Sacrifice: NSW Parliament and the Anzacs runs until April 30th 2015. Entry is free, and doors are open 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
