Later today, the Polish Hydzik family will be completely reunited at Northam after a 22-year separation. There was a joyous reunion on the wharf at Fremantle soon after 8 a.m. when the liner Neptunia arrived from Europe with the last member, Joseph Hydzik (39), who is pictured with his mother Mrs Maria Hydzik. Hydzik last saw his relatives when the family was split up in the World War. His father was killed in a bombing raid on Germany and his wife, three sons and a daughter migrated to WA in 1950. Mrs Hydzik wept with joy when her son embraced her on the wharf. Also there to meet him were brothers Stanislaw, Roman, and Boris and sister Janina.
