Description - The Stolen Children by Carmel Bird
Following the unprecedented demand for the Report on the stolen children which was published by The Human Rights and Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (HEROC) and retailed at $60.00, here are extracts from the Report which are mostly comprised of the actual stories told by the stolen generations of their experiences. These stories are deeply moving and compelling.HEROC will not be printing any more copies of the Report and they have given Carmel Bird the right to use the stories in this book so that they become more accessible to the wider population. Carmel has also written linking text and included a range of comments from politicians, social commentators, actors, artists and other prominent people.At a time when the national attention is sharply focused on the tragedy of the stolen generations, and when various institutions, political leaders and groups are officially apologising for the policies which saw so many young children being taken from their families, this book is extremely timely and quite unique in its content.
