Child migrants oral history project.

Summary

These interviews are an outcome of the interviewer's involvement in the Bringing Them Home Oral History Project which revealed the problems and even abuses that children experience in institutional care despite the good intentions of the authorities. This project will attempt to canvas the views of a number of migrant children who were sent to Australia under the Child Migrant Scheme.
