Wētā Workshop to create ‘living memorial’ at town liberated by Kiwi troops in WWI

The scene of New Zealand’s last major action in World War I will become a living memorial to those involved, and the nation’s wartime legacy. A 19th Century mansion in the northern French town of Le Quesnoy will become a museum and visitor centre that will tell the story of the Kiwi diggers who scaled the ancient walls with a ladder to liberate the town.
