AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This anthology is the culmination of four years of archiving diverse stories about the removal of Indigenous children from their families. The project was known as the 'Bringing Them Home Oral History Project' conducted by National Library of Australia and included a collection of 340 interviews. The stories and poetry included in this anthology are the voices of personal experiences and memories of a diverse group of people from every State and Territory including cottage parents, police officers, mothers and/or relinquished babies. Subjects covered include government policy, missions and childhood trauma. Source: http://www.nla.gov.au/ (Sighted: 27/07/09).
