Stories of the Hyde Railway Disaster 1943

Stories of the Hyde Railway Disaster 1943

Stories gathered by Elizabeth Coleman • Edited by Gillian-Mary Swift • Published by E. E. Coleman

In this booklet thirty people share their experiences of New Zealand's second worst rail disaster, which occurred near the small Central Otago township of Hyde in 1943. Twenty-one people lost their lives in the accident and 47 more were injured, many seriously. The stories are personal, moving and at times harrowing accounts which offer different perspectives of the war-time tragedy, including from survivors, family members who lost loved ones, and those involved in the rescue effort. For the first time this booklet acknowledges the significance of the accident in people's lives.
