From Frances, Germany

01 January 2020

Frances, Germany

a) moved here due to husband's job and to be nearer to elderly family in the UK; b) moved from Australia in 2006, via South Africa and France; c) Love being in central Europe and able to work here whilst appreciating this beautiful area. The power of travel broadens the mind. I left the UK when I was 19 and just kept moving till now I consider Germany my home.


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
