Summary

Annotation. The displacement of Lithuanians at the end of World War II was believed to be temporary. Communism would be expelled and they would return home. This did not materialize and new homes were sought. From 1947 almost 10,000 Lithuanian Displaced Persons came to Australia, 1,500 settled in Adelaide. This is a collective of stories about the Lithuanian community in South Australia, about the cultural and social clubs that formed. One thing united them all and never wavered, the hope that Lithuania would be free and that they could return home.
