National Library Oral History Project

Throughout 2012 the National Library interviewed Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants across Australia, to record their lives and their histories of being in care. This project was recommended in the two Senate reports Lost Innocents and Forgotten Australians, as a way of giving Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants a voice, and making sure their experiences aren’t lost to current and future generations.

The National Library of Australia Oral History Project interviews record the lifelong impacts of the experiences of those who were in care in Australia from the 1920’s onwards, in the over 140 institutions run by state governments, churches, non-government organisations as well as in foster homes.
