A German lady asked me to help in the following case: in the 1960s she had a girlfriend in Germany who emigrated to Australia.
The last known address for Inge Kivi (or Rivi), was Tilba St, Narooma, NSW.
Can you please check if such family is living there or help me to find them?
With best regards,
On Anzac Day we commemorate the anniversary of Australian and New Zealand soldiers landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, 1915, during the First World War.
It was the start of an eight-month campaign where more than 50,000 Australians are estimated to have fought, some 8,700 lost their lives and almost 18,000 were wounded.
It was the birthplace of the Anzac legend, where Australians forged a reputation for bravery, ingenuity and mateship that has become central to our national character. These are the traits we respect and honour in every man and woman who has served in defence of our nation.
This year we also continue to commemorate the role of the Australian troops on the Western Front with the Centenary of the Battle of Bullecourt in France and the Battle of Messines in Belgium. At Polygon Wood, near Ypres in Belgium, there will be a service commemorating the centenary of Australian involvement in the Third Battle of Ypres. We must never forget that more Australians lost their lives in 1917 due to war than in any other year of our history.
Later this year we will mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba in Israel.
This year also marks significant anniversaries from the Second World War. We have already commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore and the Bombing of Darwin, and later this year we honour the Battle of the Coral Sea, Battle of Milne Bay, Australia’s involvement at El Alamein and the end of the Kokoda campaign.
On Anzac Day we also pay tribute to those members of the Australian Defence Force currently on active service overseas, including in Afghanistan and the Middle East.
So when you see someone wearing medals on the left-hand side of their chest, please shake their hand and say, ‘thank-you for your service’.
We owe our service personnel an immeasurable debt of gratitude.
I am writing on behalf of headspace to address growing concerns raised by schools, parents and young people across Australia about some content featured in US Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.
The series – which debuted in Australia in late March and is currently streaming on Netflix - depicts a young woman who suicides.
It presents the viewer with very confronting and graphic messaging and imagery inclusive of suicide method and means. Since its debut. both the national headspace School Support Program, which supports school communities in the aftermath of a suicide, and eheadspace, the national online and over-the-phone counselling service has received a growing numbers of calls and emails directly related to the program.
The show exposes viewers to risky suicide content and may lead to a distressing reaction by the viewer particularly if the audience is children and young people. National and international research clearly indicates the very real impact and risk to harmful suicide exposure, leading to increased risk and possible suicide contagion. Clinicians working for headspace have been dealing with a steady stream of concerned parents and young people since the show first aired.
