To All Our Children. The Story of Postwar Dutch Immigration to Canada by Van der Mey, Albert

This large coffee-table book is back in print.

This book describes with numerous details the process of wanting to leave one's home and extended family, to making preparations for emigrating, to saying farewell, embarking on ships which in some cases were nothing more than trooptransportships, the misery of seasickness, to sighting land and stepping off the boat for new adventures on foreign soil among people who spoke a different language and had "strange" traditions and ways.

Starting afresh on foreign soil means overcoming obstacles. The Dutch faced many of those! Anyone who reads this book will deeply appreciate the courage of parents and grandparents, and their generation.

Hardcover, 512 pages, Richly illustrated, lists thumbnail sketches and a picture of "immigrant" ships, some statistics but no index.
