For post-World War II emigrants from Europe, choosing a new home was almost a lottery. Sometimes people came to Australia simply because the queues were shorter, and perhaps they were beguiled by the idea of sunny weather. Many chose Australia for one reason only - it was safe. In its second successful SBS-TV series, Tales from a Suitcase reveals the migrant experience in raw and moving detail. The personal stories in this book are about courage and survival. They're about triumph in the face of adversity, cultural practices lost and found. They're about what makes an Australian multicultural success story.
Author Biography: Will Davies (Series Producer) and Andrea Dal Bosco (Creative Director) are experienced filmmakers who devised the series, now in its second season. Inspired by their own early childhood, they are both passionate about sharing the Australian migrant experience.
