Once Almost 53 Years Ago

A  nine year old dutch girl stepped onto Australian soil, it became home but the longing for Europe continues...….. Once I made a booklet about it

I was enthralled by your story. Things were so particular then to individual countries - I wonder if a child of the same age today moving from the Netherlands to Australia would feel just as alienated. What probably has not changed is the cruelty of children! I so understand your desire to become proficient enough in English to disappear. So good that you wrote it all down.

Just beautiful! I was trying to read some of the journal but too blurry for these old eyes. Thanks for sharing!!!

Hello Dijanne,
magnifique recueil de souvenirs sur un support qui te ressemble tellement. Dommage que je ne sois pas très douée pour la traduction, merci pour le partage.
