National Library's Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants Oral History Project

To mark the first anniversary of the Government's apology to the Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants on 16 November 2009, the first collection of many of their stories, recorded by the National Library of Australia, have been made public. This project features interviews with some of the adults, who as children were placed in care in Australia or were sent here from the United Kingdom and Malta under sponsored child migration schemes.
