HASA is a volunteer organisation which collects and archives histories of Slovenian migrants and Slovenian organisations in Australia and makes them available to the general public.
The 10th anniversary of HASA NSW was celebrated in St Raphael's Slovenian Mission Merrylands on Saturday, 3 May, in a very friendly and homely atmosphere.
Migrants who arrived in Australia fifty years ago were invited to add their name to the Golden Book.
Federal Deputy Opposition Leader Ms Tanya Plibersek, a proud Australian of Slovenian background, was invited to sign the Golden Book as a guest of honour.
The archives have been digitised and are now available online. This is a pilot project in co-operation with the Office for Slovenians Abroad, ZRC-SAZU, Slovenian Archives in Slovenia, HASA NSW and Slovenian Media House in Australia. For more information please visit www.da-slo.si.
