My parents and I arrived on this ship Protea from Germany. We then went to the migrant camp near the Hume Weir - Bonegilla.

I also arrived on the Protea from Germany. We arrived on the 9th December in Melbourne and were taken to Bonegilla. I was 5 years old when I arrived. We originally came from Hungary, and my family name was Gyimesy.
