Attendance record for Claire French (nee Wieser) at Innsbruck University, from 1944 to 1946. According to Claire, all students had their lecture attendance strictly documented. Although it was difficult for women to attend university under Hitler's regime, Claire managed to attend Innsbruck University from 1943-44, studying International Law and Political Science. She brought her attendance record with her when she migrated to Australia with her family in 1951. In Australia she completed her studies at the University of Melbourne. The Wieser family's migration experience, is one of statelessness and displacement, both during World War II and afterwards, and of continual movement and fracturing of the family upon their arrival in Australia.
