State Library New South Wales

Stories from our migrant and refugee communities. Developed with the support of the State Library of New South Wales Foundation. The interviews record the experiences of people who have settled in Australia recently under refugee and migration schemes, or as asylum seekers. They also highlight the different perspectives of people working in the community to assist new arrivals. These recordings focus on people from a range of African countries, the Middle East, and South Asia. They add to the Library’s collections of interviews with immigrant communities post-World War II, documenting the changing profile of immigrant and refugee populations in Sydney and NSW.
