This programme utilises our ‘Captured!’ Prisoner of War (POW)-themed exhibition space, which follows the journey of Kiwi airmen captured as POWs in Europe during World War Two.
The related education programme, tailored to the level of your students, will include time in our classroom before the students are given access to the exhibition itself for that unique, hands-on learning experience. Topics covered can include real POW stories, POW camp life, interrogation, escape and the Geneva Convention.
