Author and researcher Julie Glamuzina talks about the extraordinary life of Dr Hjelmar von Dannevill. The doctor arrived in New Zealand in 1911 with little documentation and began working in a health home in Miramar. During WW1 von Dannevill was investigated and then imprisoned on Matiu/Somes Island in Wellington harbour. Jared Davidson has also written about Hjelmar.
Note there are spelling variations on the doctor's name: Hjelman, Hjelmar and Dannevill, Dannevil and Danneville.
