Bringing Them Home Online - Oral History Interviews

To mark the second anniversary of the apology to members of the Stolen Generations, the National Library of Australia has launched a special website featuring the oral history interviews with people who were involved in or affected by the removal of Indigenous children from their families.

The aim of the project has been to collect and preserve the stories of affected Indigenous people and others, including police, missionaries and administrators.
The Bringing Them Home interviews are being made available - in collaboration with the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs - in consultation with the people interviewed or their next of kin.
