Abstract

Imagining School at Benalla’s Migrant Camp
Two problems arise from the uncovering of a hitherto inaccessible but relatively unaltered school room at the former Benalla Migrant Camp. The first is in making the room visitable. The second is in helping visitors to make sense of schooling at a post-war migrant accommodation centre. Both are heritage management problems which depend on the local council finding space for Benalla Migrant Camp stories at the site of the camp. Both prompt reflection on public and personal memory- making at places related to the arrival and settlement of post-war migrants in Australia.
