Notes: "The immigrant is the fascinating true story of George Tamer, a man who truly knew the meaning of hardship. Growing up in Lebanon during the early part of the 20th century, George, his family, and many of their fellow citizens endured extreme poverty and great suffering under Turkish occupation during the First World War. After the Great War he married his childhood sweetheart and, convinced there was no future for them in the land of their birth, they borrowed money for two tickets on a passenger ship and sailed to the far-off land of New Zealand. Georges working life was a rollercoaster ride of fortune and misfortune, but through it all, his indomitable spirit shone through"--http://books.nationwidebooks.co.nz.
