Fiction in Samoanische Zeitung: Pacific Books No 3.

Fiction in Samoanische Zeitung by Dirk Spennemann

This book is a timely reminder that part of Samoa in the Pacific was a German colony before the first World War. The local newspaper The Samoanische Zeitung published fiction in its pages in both German and in English. Stories by some Australian authors appeared in its pages.

Note

The John Shaw Neilson Society

A report from the Society records that the John Shaw Neilson Cottage at Nhill has been restored and was reopened on 14 May 2006. This was Neilson's birth place and was originally located in Penola. It was moved to Nhill and opened in 1972. Recently it had fallen into decay and the Council wished to demolish it. Local outcry saved the house and volunteers and the local Rotary Club carried out the restoration.
