In her beautifully produced art book, people speak through oral histories, the immigrant writers’ poems, songs reflecting a centuries-long cultural tradition, and the author’s expressive prose. The Lituanians were amongst the earliest wave of continental European immigrants – Displaced Persons – post-World War II. The immigrant influx which continued for succeeding decades eventually changed Australia’s British society and assimilationist expectations. The story resonates with the experiences of all migrant groups. Join Dr Eve Wicks as she discusses her book <em>Saulėje ir šešėlyje.
