    'Separating Aboriginal children from family and community began as soon as Europeans set foot on our land. The belief that it is in the best interest of Aboriginal children to be removed from Aboriginal culture and assimilated into White culture has justified the systematic disruption of Aboriginal families. This book traces the history of removing Aboriginal children in New South Wales and contains testimonies of Aboriginals whose lives have been profoundly and painfully altered by separation. The book grew out of a submission of Link-Up (NSW) Aboriginal Corporation to the 1996 Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC) National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families.'
