Joanna Milan arrived on 15th August 1945. She says:
"The square represents myself as a young girl alone arriving in a strange country. The bluebells remind me of the first spring in England where there were carpets of bluebells. It was such an amazing sight and the smell was overwhelming - it was the start of a new life."
There are a series of four quilts, which are on display for free.
