Audio Testimonies

From 1998 to 2002, the National Library of Australia recorded 340 interviews with members of the Stolen Generations and their families and carers, as well as with those who worked in the institutions to which children were removed or were otherwise involved in the policy or implementation forced removal.

The Bringing them Home Oral History Project was announced by the Commonwealth Government in December 1997, in response to the first recommendation of the Bringing them Home report: "That the Council of Australian Governments ensure the adequate funding of appropriate Indigenous agencies to record, preserve and administer access to the testimonies of Indigenous people affected by the forcible removal policies who wish to provide their histories in audio, audio-visual or written form."
