Black and white photograph from an album containing a personal story of Julius Toth's immigration experience and a collection of 40 photo reproductions. Julius left Hungary late in 1956 following the unsuccessful Hungarian revolution and subsequent Soviet Occupation. He escaped to Austria where he spent three months in Displaced Persons Camps before migrating to Australia in March 1957. This image shows Julius' small bedroom with his most prized possession, a Grundig radio, and favourite icon sitting on top of it, a Hungarian Flag he collected on his journey to Australia.
Inscription in Hungarian on reverse of photograph reads: Anywhere I lived the little flag from the ship was in view.
