The Story of Eduard Gatternig (Croatian immigrant)

The Museum reviews and accepts donated personal or family memories and histories into its collection. As a learning institution, the accounts help us understand how individuals recollect, interpret, or construct meaning from lived experiences. The stories are not modified by Museum staff. The point of view expressed is that of the author and not that of the Museum.

All I ask of you young people now - Please support us old people now - not when we are gone! Pensions never go up.
I visit you people every year! (14 years).
I am a proud Canadian.
