'Celebrating 175 Years of German Settlement in Western Australia

'In 1841, 175 years ago, the first German migrant to settle permanently in Western Australia was naturalised as a British subject. Fredrick Waldeck wanted to demonstrate his commitment to his chosen place of residence; the place where he and his loved ones felt at home and to which he felt a new sense of allegiance. Thousands of Germans and German speakers have followed in his footsteps – male and female, young and old, rich and poor – all united by hope and the pursuit of a future that would add a new, West Australian, component to their sense of identity. This book is dedicated to all those who appreciate diversity and the cultural richness it entails, and who have, like so many of those in this volume, proved their appetite for risk-taking and new beginnings.'
