Local historians weekly "Back Issues" article in the Manawatū Standard. During World War I, anyone seen as linked to enemy countries was a target for hatred. Not even people born in New Zealand were immune. In the Manawatū, German immigrants, people with non-British sounding surnames, Lutheran churches and associated schools suffered discrimination. Many street names associated with Germans were changed.
