Forgotten Australians remembered

Forgotten Australians remembered
16 November 2012

To mark the third anniversary of the National Apology to the Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants, the National Library has published a commemorative booklet, You Can't Forget Things Like That, which features many of their remarkable stories.

On 16 November 2009, as part of the National Apology, the Federal Government commissioned the National Library to embark on a major Oral History project to record the stories of Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants. More than 200 interviews have now been recorded and they will all be archived in the Library's collection. The booklet also marks the end of the oral history project.

Many of these interviews are now available online via the Library's website.
