‘Silver City’ memorabilia on display

From the Maitland Mercury report:

East Maitland branch librarian Olga McTackett has a special connection to the people who lived at Greta Migrant Camp. She was born at Greta’s “Silver City” in 1951 after her Ukrainian parents migrated here from a displaced person’s camp in Germany. A display of three collections of migrant camp memorabilia will open for exhibition at East Maitland Public Library on Monday. The collections show the lives of migrants at Greta, Port Stephens and Mayfield camps after World War II.
An official exhibition launch will be held at the library on December 4.
