His brother got fifth young Australian of the year for his speeches. A German ship rocked up and brought them aboard but they did it by throwing his dad and axe they were speaking German so they didn’t understand until he found out he had to smash the boat the captain couldn’t save them unless the boat was sinking. The first thing that happened was they were introduced by nums and gave them a huge bag of clothes, half of the clothes were for a little boy and half a little girl. But there mum didn’t care they’d been through starvation and war she won’t chuck the clothes back so she put the girl clothes on his brother and because he looked like a boy in girls clothes she grew his hair longer.

 What route did they take to Australia?

Was Ahn do scared about his little brother getting thrown off board?
