This morning while I was at the gym, my Dad texted me: β€œWe arrived in Montreal on Wednesday, June 3rd, 1959 at 9:30am on the Ship Batory; arrived by train in Toronto at 10:00pm.”

The pic you see above was the last view my family in Poland had of my Grandparents Edziu and Wanda and their three sons Tadeusz, Janusz, and Juliusz. On May 20th, 1959 at 8:00pm, my father and his family sailed from Gdynia, Poland to Montreal, Canada on the good ship Batory.

How courageous his parents were to brave the unknown with three young boys in tow, and all their possessions in a wicker basket. And how humbled am I.
