Current recipient

As the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing approaches, Minna Muhlen-Schulte will explore the complex relationship German-Australians have with our wartime past. The project will specifically investigate the impact of World War II and Nazi ideology on Melbourne's German-Australian community.

Minna Muhlen-Schulte is a historian, currently working as Assistant Project Manager at Lateral Projects.
