Description
"A Night of Terror' traces the history of Wairarapa and Wellington region earthquakes and the reasons for them. It recreates the dramatic events of June 24, 1942 and the aftermath in Masterton and the other towns in the valley and Wairarapa's countryside. There are the frantic efforts to remove the dangerous ornamentation and demolish damaged buildings as the aftershocks continued. There are the attempts to repair and rebuild at a time when the outcome of World War II was still very much in the balance.
