Vignacourt, Western Front: ANZAC Week from 21st to 25th April 2015 [fr]

Remember Me, the Lost Diggers of Vignacourt

The exhibition of the Thuillier photographs collection toured Australia from November 2012 until January 2015, and was on display at the Australian War Memorial, the Queensland Museum, the State Library of Australia and the State Library of New South Wales.

On this occasion, in July 2014, 9 youth ambassadors from Vignacourt travelled to Australia to meet with the descendants of some of the diggers who were identified in the 800 photographs taken by Louis and Antoinette Thuillier. In partnership with the Alliances françaises, the 9 youth ambassadors from Vignacourt went to Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Their roadtrip through Australia was chronicled in a documentary entitled "We are the Diggers."
