Dutch immigrant children in Canada 1947-1959
by van Arragon Hutten, Anne
The author describes this book as a ‘collective autobiography’. It is an effort to tell not only her own story but also those of hundreds of other Dutch immigrant children. She takes a deeper look at immigration by asking questions such as, ‘Who were my ancestors, and why did my parents uproot us? Was their move to Canada justified by economic conditions in their homeland? Did immigration affect the kind of parenting we received?’ Billed as a thought-provoking look at Dutch-Canadian immigration we urge very critical reading of this book.
