The Stolen Children - Their Stories is an acknowledgement of the human tragedy created during a misunderstood and shameful part of Australia's history. The Stolen Children - Their Stories includes a collection of documents and personal stories of Indigenous people that appear in the Report from the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, Bringing Them Home. Also in this collection are the reactions to the Report by political and community leaders.'
