Twenty-Five years ago a lone gunman, who we won't name in this podcast, killed 35 people and injured dozens more predominantly at the Port Arthur historic site outside Hobart in Tasmania.
The shootings rocked the entire country, and resulted in strict gun laws the government hoped would prevent such an atrocity from ever happening again.
The echoes of that violence are still reverberating, and for survivors, victims' families and, first responders the trauma persists.
The Port Arthur Massacre is a difficult subject to broach in Tasmania, the mass murder is surrounded by an unofficial vow of silence.
But some people think we should talk about it, in order to help Port Arthur, Tasmania, and the country heal.
On this week's episode of Voice of Real Australia we speak to first responders who were there, some of which have never spoken publicly about the tragedy before.
