Notes

Title devised by cataloguer.

Collected by Dr Keiko Tamura.

After WWII, more than 10,000 Japanese women, who are known as Senso hanayome (war brides), married foreign soldiers and migrated to overseas countries. In 1953, the first war bride was arrived in Australia and over the next several years, about 650 additional war brides came to Australia. In 1993, an Australian war brides’ social gathering was organised to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their arrival. Over 90 women attended this first meeting, which was based on the U.S. meeting first held in the U.S. in 1988. In 1994, Japanese war brides from various countries came together in order to form an international association. It has provided an opportunity for the members to interact and to share their opinion and information, as well as to ensure the history of war brides is passed on to future generations.
