The struggle of "immigrant" children in your displays gives vivid account of discipline and sheer misery. May hard work by balanced with play and fraternising for all to remain happy.

It was not Adelaide or Anchorage, it was Aberdeen in Scotland my father was evacuated to during the war. He is now 82 and I am almost 50. This exhibition has taught me more about the man my father is, than 50 years of being his son. At the core it is justifiable, beyond the core it is without morality. Lest we forget.

Sad about the children. I wish I could have helped.
