Snapshots from the life of Dimitrios Rekas. This is the story of the life of a man who was kind to everyone, even though life was not as kind to him. Dimitrios Rekas was born in Agiorgitika (Arcadia), a pretty mountainous village in mainland Greece and this is his story, as recalled by him. His tale reflects a somewhat cheeky childhood which was also full of sorrows during the tumultuous years of World War II and his decision to emigrate to Sydney, Australia. His story includes his early days in Australia amongst strangers and his experiences after leaving Bonegilla, a military-stile camp for migrants, towards an uncertain future. Written during his sunset years, Dimitrios reflects on the sorrowful moments of his life, but also celebrates the pleasures that life has granted him along the way, including his wife, children and grandchildren. In Dimitrio's words: "We made it! Who would have thought?"
