Stolen Childhoods

From October 2011 to May 2012, the Immigration Museum hosted On Their Own, a touring exhibition about the international history of child migration created by the National Maritime Museum of Australia and National Museums Liverpool. The museum also developed a companion exhibition, Stolen Childhoods, to tell the story of three child migrants in Victoria and Tasmania: Hugh McGowan, Sandra Anker and Michael Harvey.

So many people visited the child migrants exhibition and were moved by the first-person accounts of Hugh, Sandra and Michael their stories are now online along with the podcast from the public forum, hosted at the museum on March 31, 2012.
