    'The intention of this publication has been to highlight the forced removal of Aboriginal children from their Aboriginal families to be placed in government settlements, missions and children's homes. In this publication Aboriginal people who were removed as children recount personal oral histories of separation from their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and extended families. Recounted as well, is the trauma experienced by the parents, who were physically and legally disempowered by the laws and policies which governed all aspects of Aboriginal peoples' lives'.

    'Graeme Dixon's journey is one that has been made too often by too many Aboriginal people. It is a journey that lies within a legal system that has at its core a lock and key: on doors and windows, in hearts and minds it incarcerates whole communities. Graeme's poems and stories speak from the heart and they speak from experience, the living voice of Aboriginal prisoners past and present.' Source: Holocaust Revisited: Killing Time (2003)
