What it currently says in equivalent to "England lake"
Just a few examples of it being treated as one letter: if accents are used, it isn't just used on one half of the letter, but on both parts
When someone's name starts with it, its initial will show the whole thing. So for instance IJsbrand Peters will have the initials IJ. P.
In crossword puzzels etc the letter always takes up just one
square. So the word bij takes 2 squares not 3.
And both parts of the letter are capitalized
But the barrier existed: barbed wire / mined areas etc.
The definition is not completely correct.
The actual barriers came as the eastern block started to put more restrictions on travel.
I had wanted to answer Ireland on the basis that immigration from Ireland had been going on since the 1200's and Ireland provided a lot of the labour for building the canals and railways in the 1800's. The term 'Indian' for immigrants also covers Pakistan, Bangladesh and, in the 1960's, East Africa. This followed Uganda's expulsion of the Indian heritage population and associated immigration from other East Africa countries following general hostility to people of Indian heritage.
