Photograph article dated November 17, 1961 partially reads, "'...most of all we are thankful for our new future.' With those words, Marinus Louis Naberman concluded a short but meaningful list of things he and his family are grateful for this Thanksgiving, their first one in America. Naberman, his wife, Ann Mary, both 41, and three young sons have been refugees twice. In 1954 they left Jakarta, Indonesia, when the Dutch government returned power to native leaders. They moved to Holland. Last month they left Holland because as Naberman puts it: 'There was little future for our sons there.' Although now unemployed, he sees his new homeland as a place where new frontiers are opening, where opportunities abound." Saying a Thanksgiving prayer in their Sepulveda apartment, left to right, are Robert, 16; Peter, 10; Mr. and Mrs. Naberman, and James, 12.; See images #00127322 through #00127326 for all photos in this series.
