HIS/HERSTORY, which  is having a season at Circa Theatre in Wellington at the moment (April 22- May 14), is two solo shows — one of which is about a nurse during WWII.

Written and performed by her daughter, Kate JasonSmith, it tells the story of her mother, a nurse, whose hospital followed the war across Europe.


She eventually ended up as part of the liberation of Belsen. It is an extraordinary story.

We would love to bring this to the attention to nurses.

The show is performed as a double bill, alongside a story about a Dunedin butcher who twice escaped his German captors in WWII, and lived in a cave for two years.
