A Gift from the Honorary Consul of Lithuania in N. Australia

August 1, 2022

Eglė Garrick, the Honorary Consul of Lithuania to Northern Australia, visited the National Library of Lithuania this summer. During the visit, she presented a gift, a book Remembering Horton St / Clarke St Lithuanians by Kristina Surkaitė-Hitchon. “After World War II, about 10 000 Lithuanians came to Australia. There was a large Lithuanian community in Sydney, with as many as forty families settling on Horton and Clarke Streets. The book presents the stories and photographs of these families and reflects the life of the Lithuanian community in Australia,” Eglė Garrick said about the book.
