Google Maps – Sharing, collaborating and researching Ponar Forest, Vilna (Lithuania) This site was a popular destination for picnics prior to WWII. During the Holocaust it became a place associated with genocide as Jews were massacred by the Nazis. Visitors to the forest have pinned images of the memorials to the Google map of the region

Invisible Australian

‘Blackbirding’ Kidnapping and transporting South Sea Islanders for work on sugarcane plantations An end to labour trade

South Sea Islanders planting cane, Bingera, 1897

The trade in Pacific Labour drew criticism from many sectors. But it was the White Australia Policy and the desire to protect jobs for white Australians that finally ended the Labour trade. In 1901 the Labour Trade formally ceased and the Australian government took steps to deport South Sea Islanders to their home islands. This was impossible and undesirable for many, and resulted in more hardships and discrimination for those who had made Queensland home.
