A talk and slideshow by Patricia Skidmore, daughter of a British Child Migrant.  The stories of the British Child Migrants, also known as Home Children, have for the most part, remained untold. "Marjorie: Too Afraid To Cry" tells of Marjorie Arnison’s 1937 journey to Canada as a 10-year-old girl. "Marjorie: Her War Years" gives an account of Marjorie’s five years at the Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm School just south of Duncan, on Vancouver Island, BC.
