Anna and Kalman Kiss were Displaced Persons (DPs) following the Soviet invasion of Hungary. Their story is similar to many people displaced by the events of the Second World War and its aftermath. After time spent in a Displaced Persons camp in Europe they migrated to Australia, bringing with them few possessions. Their personal papers illuminate a little of their story. While Anna was not able to bring many mementoes of Hungary with her she filled her home with Hungarian crafts, some that she made herself as the mats in this collection show, and some bought as souvenirs on later visits to her former home country. The collection, particularly through the photographs, illustrates how Anna and Kalman established a new life in Australia, where they took up citizenship, while maintaining strong connections with their Hungarian culture.
