Maria Hill in conversation David Hill former Chairman of the ABC about the

Ausatralian Campaigns in Greece and Crete

Museum of Sydney, Circular Quay, Sydney

Sunday 16th May 2010 4.30 – 7.00pm

DAVID HILL former Chairman and Managing Director of the ABC and current President of the International Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures is joining MARIA HILL to discuss her new book Diggers and Greeks on the Australian Campaigns in Greece and Crete.

Dr MARIA HILL is a military historian and an expert on the Greek and Crete campaigns. She has an Honours, Masters and PhD in History from the University of New South Wales. Maria is the first Australian historian of Greek descent to write about these campaigns, which has ensured that a Greek perspective has been included in a narrative that often ignores Australia’s Greek allies. Currently, she is Visiting Fellow at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra.

  • The discussion will be illustrated with rare photographs from
    the Greek and Australian archives and original film footage

  • Audience comments and questions are welcomed

Refreshments will be served at the commencement of the event

Signed copies of the Diggers and Greeks will be available for purchase from the Museum shop
