From Holland to Canada


These pictures are I think my favorite of all the old pics given to me. They are of my family when they arrived in Windsor, Ontario, from Holland. The journalling tells the story of the trip across the ocean by boat, and then by train from Halifax to Windsor...as remembered by my mom, who is now 88. I can't even imagine leaving your homeland with 5 boys, leaving your family and friends, for a country where you don't speak the language or even have a job...what an accomplishment...I don't think I have even a portion of what it takes to do such a thing...so I have deep admiration for my parents who did. Suitcases are from PDDU, title was made with SB and OA.
