Home Front: Victory in the Pacific Day Poster 2020

Home Front: Victory in the Pacific Day Poster 2020

We've created this poster to commemorate the contributions of Australians on the Home Front during World War II. This poster was released for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Display our poster to help remember and recognise the contributions of all Australians during the war.

With the end of the war announced, people around Australia poured into the streets in celebration. For years they had lived with rationing and austerity, they had worked hard and for long hours, been anxious for loved ones on active service and feared a Japanese invasion.

Designed to support the Home Front poster for VP Day 2020; the Wartime Snapshot No 28 features Prime Minister Chifley's declaration of peace and describes the first VP Day celebrations. It's supported by learning activities to support teachers and students.
