From Juskova Vôľa to Cowichan Lake, BC

So, in 1938 the family saw us off on our epic journey from Juskova Voľa to BC. Canada. Many family members came with us to the train station in Vranov where we all said our teary goodbyes. We travelled on an electric train to Kosice, and from there we took a regular train to Prague where doctors subjected us to another 3 or 4 health examinations. In those days immigrants had to be cleared by Canada's own doctors before entering the country.
