Experiences of SA German-Australians in the early 1900s (in development)
South Australia had the largest German-born and German-heritage population in the country. Between 1899 and 1945 Australia was involved in 3 wars, all of which included Germany as the enemy. How were the German-Australian population treated during this turbulent time? Did they remain aloof from Australian culture and retain the German identity, or did they consider themselves Australian?
This topic consists of an exploration into the history of the Germans in South Australia, their connection with Germany, the treatment they received during and after the three wars in which Australia was involved, and their general experiences in South Australia during the early 1900s.
