I am grateful that he was an avid photographer. He had kept many rolls of negatives from our DP years and most of the images are scanned from these.
Arvids on left at his workplace on an asparagus farm near Melbourne, the first work he was assigned in Australia. No European qualifications were recognized at the time. My father was a radio technician. My mother, Anita and I were sent to a holding camp in Mildura, over 500km away. We joined him in Melbourne six months later when he was able to guarantee housing for us after being permitted to move to a job in a radio electronics factory in Melbourne.

I am trying to retrace my parents' steps. Your 7th picture in this site, shows a lady on the left which you simply called a 'friend'. This lady looks like my mother. I sent this to my sister and she confirmed it. Can anyone provide any details as to what camp, what time, the lady in the pictue, etc.
Thank you so much. Wolodimir Wolowec email@example.com
