Migrant Hostel Photographic Exhibition, "A Place to Call Home", Opens at the National Archives - Australia

The National Archives in Canberra has launched a new photographic exhibition giving an insight into life in Australia's migrant centres after WWII. From a collection of 20,000 photographs, 50 images are featured in the exhibition. The first migrant centre established in Australia was Bonegilla in Victoria in 1947.  Other centres were opened soon after and located all across Australia to accommodate the mass intake of European refugees after WWII.

The exhibition runs from 30 May 2014 - 30 September 2014.
