  • Description

    This book commemorates the tenth anniversary of the Forde Inquiry, which investigated the abuse of children in Queensland institutions. Former Queensland Governor Leneen Forde took information from more than 300 people and looked at the histories of more than 150 orphanages and detention centres. The report made 42 recommendations.

    The stories, memories and observations of some of the children in 'care' are recorded in this book. Although now adults, many live daily with the effects of prolonged and profound trauma.
