This is a rich collection of stories that focuses on the life experiences of two individuals, one of Greek heritage and one of Polish heritage, who immigrated and settled in Victoria post World War II. The resource explores how these people shared their cultural heritage and how this enriched Australian life at this time. There are three sections: Introductory information; Story Objects; and Story Education Resources. The 21 Story Objects include digital stories, images and audio recordings. The two Story Education Resources are units of work, one is titled Kinįmatográfos (for Year 10 History) and the other is titled Polish Dance (for Year 6 History).
