Rachel ‘Rae’ Epstein - alien registration file

Rae Epstein submitted this application for registration as an alien resident soon after her arrival in Australia in 1939. The Epsteins’ migration to Australia was sponsored by Rae’s uncle, Chaskiel Majer Borek, in a phenomenon known as chain migration, where migrants once settled would assist others to do the same.
