On 11 November, at 11am, State Library will join millions of Australians in observing one minute’s silence to commemorate Remembrance Day – a quiet moment held in recognition of those who have served, died, or suffered in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
Anzac Square Memorial Galleries, located beneath the Shrine of Remembrance in Brisbane CBD, will be open from 10am to 4pm for patrons wishing to explore the free exhibition or place a poppy in honour of Queensland-associated battalions, regiments, and other units.
Wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing, you can stop and reflect this Remembrance Day with help from your voice assistant. To start, just say "Ask Anzac Stories" using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and follow the prompts to play The Last Post, request a poppy be placed on your behalf inside Anzac Square Memorial Galleries, or listen to stories of bravery and sacrifice from the armed forces through this award-winning program.
While you’re online, you can help State Library document the story of Queensland by sharing your heartfelt memories with us in Explorer. You can tag and comment on existing State Library collection items related to Queensland’s war history… or add your own story! We would love to learn more about who you’ll stop to remember this Remembrance Day.
You can learn about some of the Queensland heroes we’ll be honouring this Remembrance Day and discover more ways to commemorate at home and online at https://www.anzacsquare.qld.gov.au/commemorate/commemorate-remembrance-day
