This book tells the story of the thousands of Aboriginal children who were forcibly removed from their parents as part of Australian government policies over many decades. The story of the stolen generations is a sad story with a sad legacy. Whole families and communities were fractured and torn apart. Many of the stolen children and in some cases their children and grandchildren are still searching for their relatives. Many still suffer from the effects of this separation and fragmentation. This is a story that all Australians need to know. For only by understanding our history can we move forward together towards a reconciled Australia.
