Using grounded theory methodology and interviews, this study explores the experiences of second generation displaced persons from Polish and German background who grew up in Australia post-World War Two. Many of this cohort, from their early years, experienced: limited social, economic, and cultural capital; assimilation; and lived in war-affected families. It was, therefore, important that they became resilient and adaptable. Emergent from the research are the theoretical concepts of “parallel lives” and “circle of protection”.
