Below are links to a number of short profiles of peacemakers from New Zealand.

Each peacemaker is covered by a short text which covers aspects of their lives, or presents a quote in which they explain why they stood for peace and against war. We suggest that you or your group select a few peacemakers to remember this Anzac Day, reading out loud their story and reflecting on what they have done and said. A series of quotes about peace can be used to open and close the time of remembering, and we have supplied a list of activities that can be tailored to the needs of your group.
