Is the plight of our current 'unaccompanied minor' refugees any better than that of these remarkable children? Are we acknowledging their needs? Listen to the children.

Confronting, thought provoking and moving. A powerful and very important exhibition.

An excellent and moving exhibition - so well put together. Among all the tragic stories it was heartening to listen to a few stories where some of the child migrants believe their experiences were positive. As a mother of now grown up children much of the exhibition was gut wrenching!

I can remember 'buying' photos of children under the care of Barnardos in the UK as a child - I'm now horrified at the concept and what this fundraising effort really meant - I chose to emigrate in the 60s but those children I 'bought' - who knows what happened, what choices they had.
