1 VanderMey, Albert To all our children: The story of the postwar Dutch immigration to Canada
Canada Paideia Press 1983 0888151004 / 9780888151001 First Edition Hardcover Fine Very Good 
0888151004 512 pages. "Between 1946 and 1982 more than 180,000 people emigrated from The Netherlands to Canada. That enormous tide peaked in 1952, when almost 21,000 Netherlanders made Canada their home. The movement arose out of a long-occupied country whose citizens considered Canadians their liberators, out of tiny Holland's limited capacity for growth, and out of the uneasy political situation in Europe. The real result of the movement, the lives of the ordinary people who uprooted themselves to immigrate, is the subject of this overwhelming documentation. Told simply and movingly, this is the story of eveyr immigrant's experience, from the decision to leave and the journey itself to the arrival in Canada and the difficulties to be faced." - from dust jacket. Copiously illustrated in black and white. Book clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. Light wear and rubbing to dust jacket. Quality copy.
