Trunks and Suitcases

These trunks and suitcases were used by Mikolaj Rezko, Bill Erwich, and Michael Gryllis and Theo Gryllis on their journeys to Australia. They are poignant symbols of what was often a long and difficult journey, and a reminder of the difficult choices migrants made about what they could take to Australia.
