There was a special preview screening of The Tragedy of the Montevideo Maru at Fox
Andrea Williams, Una Voce editor and relative of two of the men who died on the ship, reports:
I have just returned from watching The Tragedy of the
Maru. It is a powerful documentary, magically weaving together what happened in Montevideo New Guineaand South-East Asia.
It gets the story of the Montevideo Maru out there – there will be no excuse for ignorance after this!
It is informative and impassioned, capturing the spirit of this enormous human tragedy … testament to this was that everyone continued to sit and absorb the impact of it for several minutes after it ended.
John Schindler is to be congratulated for his enormous achievement.
What a special Remembrance Day this is!
The documentary has its premiere screening on Foxtel’s
History Channel tonight at 7.30 pm (AEDST) and at 6.30 pm in
PNG Attitude would like to get your feedback on the documentary. So after viewing it tonight, why don’t you email me here.
