He is grateful to his late parents for their efforts in starting a new life in the great country of Australia after WW2. Stanislaw (born in Poland) and Eliane (born in France) together with their 2 year old son Jean-Marc arrived in Melbourne in March 1950. Jean-Marc had no nationality and was classed as a stateless refugee. After a time at the Bonegilla migrant camp in northern Victoria, and after many years of struggle, things got sorted because of Stan and Eliane’s drive to succeed. We all became naturalised Aussies, and John is proud that although he was not born in Australia, his first and only nationality has been Australian.
