University Archive Gems
Here's a link to a blog created by students studying French Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne. The students have used items in the university archives, many of which belonged to students or staff, to showcase the the experiences of Australian soldiers in WW1.
Included in the archives is the published experiences of Oliver Holmes Woodward, which were used as source material for the Australian movie 'Beneath Hill 60'.
Being a blog written by students of French Cultural Studies, most of it is written in French, but with the wonders of Google Translate, non-Francophones can get the gist of it easily.
