MINT - a NEW copy. Card wraps. Illustrated with Colour and Black & White Photographs. 417 pages In 1938 sculptor Karl Duldig, his wife Slawa Horowitz-Duldig - inventor of the modern foldable umbrella - and their baby daughter Eva, left their home in Vienna for an uncertain future. They found a brief refuge in Singapore before arriving in Sydney on 25 September 1940. Spanning three continents and three generations, it poignantly captures both the loss that families encounter when they are dislocated by war and the challenges they face when adapting to a new way of life. This book offers an insight into the cultural life of Australia at a time of enormous change, politically and artistically and a profound lesson in the experience of emigration in the worst of circumstances.
