After Port Arthur
 
(0 reviews)  

A decade on, journalist Carol Altmann looks at how the people, the place, the killer, and the whole country has changed since the horrific massacre at one of Australia's most infamous historic landmarks, Port Arthur convict site.

It was 28 April 1996, the day of the worst civilian massacre in history. The day 35 innocent people were murdered at Port Arthur in Tasmania.

All Australians reeled in shock at the news. But what happens to those involved once the headlines have faded and the TV cameras have been switched off? For those who had witnessed the horror or lost loved ones, their lives had been changed irrevocably. Learning to cope with such an experience is a life-long process. Through very personal stories, After Port Arthur documents the profound effects the event has had on the people involved. Their ongoing search to find strength in such tragedy is testament to the greater human spirit.
