In May 2022 it will be exactly forty years since my arrival in Australia.
The biggest wave of migrants from Poland started in 1980 and ended in the early 1990s. Between 1980 and 1985, 15,570 Polish settlers arrived in Australia. At the 1991 Census, the Poland-born population increased to 68,496 people – an all-time high.
We all came with big hopes for a new life. With small suitcases, often with the ‘baggage’ of our lives left behind, we landed in Australia. Each life different but the same in many ways. Memories, living memories waiting to be turned into stone monuments.
