Memento : Issue 23
19 may 2003 memento Bonegilla was the first and largest of several migrant hostels established after World War II to accommodate displaced persons and assisted migrants. It was the first home in Australia to over 320,000 migrants during its operation. Recalling those days is From the Steps of Bonegilla, a touring exhibition from the Albury Regional Museum. The exhibition uses photographs, personal stories and memorabilia to provide an insight into life at the Bonegilla Migrant Reception Centre in Victoria from 1947 to 1971. We are supplementing the exhibition with material drawn from our collection on displaced persons and immigration as well as personal accounts from former Bonegilla inhabitants. The exhibition will be in our Canberra gallery from 4 July until 26 October 2003.
