Summary
This is a true story about two boys, Frici and Istvan one Jewish, one Catholic living two kilometres but worlds apart in Timisoara, Romania, when World War 2 shatters their innocence and their lives.Spanning two continents and three generations of two families whose lives unexpectedly intersect in their adopted country, this book beautifully captures the loss and dislocation wrought by war; and the struggles and challenges of starting anew in another country. 'With Just One Suitcase' is a tribute to the courage and resilience of two men who bear the scars of war, who faced and overcame adversity while never surrendering their optimism for the future.'Like many adult children of first generation Australians, I have grown to appreciate more deeply the momentous decision made by my parents in leaving their homes, their families and everything familiar to them to come to a new land. I believe Australia has benefited in so many ways from the trust and optimism fof those who migrated to our shores. Our richness as a migrant nation endures through the stories of our forbears, told and retold to new generations. This is one such story among many that make us who we are today.' Tanya Plibersek, Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Development
