Condolence books containing thousands of messages to families affected by the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 tragedy are now housed within the State Library of Victoria.

Following the tragedy that claimed 298 lives, the condolence books were placed at local councils, public libraries, the offices of members of Parliament, the Melbourne Town Hall, Parliament House, the multi-faith service at St Paul’s Cathedral and at the State Library of Victoria to allow people around Victoria to share their grief and messages of support.

The books are a memorial to this painful event and now form part of the Library’s manuscripts collection kept in trust for all Victorians.
