Invisible immigrants

The Swiss Historical Society of the State of New South Wales will publish a book in the coming months that tells, for the first time, the history of the Swiss colony in the state of Australia.

“Invisible Immigrants” tells the story of Swiss emigrants in Sydney from 1898 to the present. The publication is edited by Bettina Boss (picture below), an expatriate Swiss who left the Swiss city of Basel 39 years ago to go to Australia.
