New website tells the story of the Stolen Generations
Posted: February 14th, 2012
Yesterday, on the fourth anniversary of former Prime Minister Rudd’s national apology to the Stolen Generations, a new website was launched to share the personal stories of members of the Stolen Generations.
The ‘Stolen Generations’ Testimonies’ project is an initiative to record on film the personal testimonies of Australia’s Stolen Generations Survivors and share them online.
According to the Project’s website, “The Stolen Generations’ Testimonies Foundation hopes the online museum will become a national treasure and a unique and sacred keeping place for Stolen Generations’ Survivors’ Testimonies. By allowing Australians to listen to the Survivors’ stories with open hearts and without judgement, the foundation hopes more people will be engaged in the healing process.”
So far more than 30 people have shared their personal histories for the Project. You can watch them online at www.stolengenerationstestimonies.com
