Fantastic exhibition but so sad. I won't forget it.

I was one of these child migrants 1937. Never to see my mother again. She was never told I had left England. Been here 75 years but will never forget. The governments apology means nothing to me, they are just words, they will never feel the loss I do after these years. I forgive but never forget.

Heartbreaking. How can human beings be so cruel. A mother's love for her child is the greatest emotion on earth.

Incredible stories. A well-balanced and thoughtful presentation of a highly complex issue. What evil we may do through misguided good intentions. We cannot change history, but hopefully we can learn from it.

Dianne Maddens, I live near Peterborough, ON Canada. If you research Hazelbrae monument your ancestors name will be on it and if you contact them, they may be able to tell you more. My great aunt also came to Canada, first stop Hazelbrae, then was sent on to work at different farms. Good luck with your search
