Background: With a general accommodation problem affecting all refuge work in Holland, the Queen has set a premier example by throwing open part of her Palace 't Loo, near Appeldoorn, to returning Dutch nationals from Indonesia.
Opening up a wing of the Palace, the Queen has made accommodation available for 70 people - mainly families and old folk with nowhere else to go.
After months of suspense, the refugees arrive at their new home and, for the first time since the Indonesian crisis commenced, they have a home of their own.
