Wonderful exhibition. I was at Fairbridge Molong late 1950s-mid 1960s. Well treated. Brings back great memories. I enjoyed ship voyage. Happy reunion with parents and lived in England 10 years working in hospitals in London.

Many thanks to all who brought about this extraordinary exhibition. It is highly poignant that such suffering is the result, at least in some cases, of good intentions.

My memories of Fairbridge Farm are coming just memories as there is now a lot of support and counselling which helps enormously. If you receive no love it is hard to give love. Please look after your children with plenty of love and they will grow up to be happy adults.

From good intentions, sometimes driven by desperate circumstances, children have suffered, lives have broken, but some have remained optimistic. I admire the survival skills of them all.

Having read David Hill's wonderful, but sad, story of his years at Fairbridge, we found the exhibition very emotional.
