New Zealand: Surviving a Massacre

Two years after New Zealand’s deadly mosque shootings, 101 East returns to find out how those most deeply affected are coping.

On March 15, 2019, the New Zealand city of Christchurch was shattered when a gunman opened fire at two mosques, killing 51 people and wounding another 40.

In the following days, flowers and messages of support flowed in from around the world amid a public outpouring of grief. But two years later, the world’s media and international attention have moved on, while those at the heart of the tragedy are still finding ways to deal with the trauma.

101 East returns to Christchurch to follow the survivors on their journey of recovery from wounds both physical and emotional.
