Thirteen biographies of German migrants who arrived just prior to or after WWII allow an insight into the experience of migration - each a unique and original portrait of human life. They were refugees, persecuted for their faith or destitute. They had lost their homes and loved ones and were left without hope. They set out on a journey of faith, they were searching for work or love - they came to Australia. But what does it mean, to leave the country of one's origin, to start anew in a strange land as a migrant, a newcomer, a foreigner? What confronts those, who arrive here? They came with enthusiasm and prepared to work hard - they encountered trials and tribulations that were at times funny, septimes exasperating and always touching. They carried in their luggage memories of home. With a foreword by Dr Heinz Leonhard Kretzenbacher, University of melbourne and photographs by Eva Maria Rugel
