    Collection Creator
    Eva Sekules
    Eva Sekules (1926-2003) was born in Vienna, Austria on 7 April 1926. After immigrating to Great Britain (ca. 1939), she lived in children's homes of the Caldecott Community between 1940 and 1944, first at Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent, and then at Hyde House, Wareham, Dorset. She was ordered to report to duty in the Auxiliary Territory Service in Pontefract, Yorkshire, in 1944, and served in this from 1944 - 1946, including time with the Royal Artillery on the Isle of Wight. She appears to have returned to Austria on several trips following the war, between 1949 and 1954.
