Unbearably, painfully sad.

Beautifully done!! I find it hard to comprehend that people thought this was a good thing. Very moving. Can't imagine how these poor little children felt.

So called religious societies have and always will have a lot to answer for. A really good informative exhibition.

Thanks for this wonderful exhibition. I am the daughter of a British child migrant. My Dad, a sister and a brother were sent to Swan Homes in WA. The hardships they endured have left a lasting legacy upon their children and their children's children. Particularly for my Aunt who was only 11 years old at the time.

May we learn from these horrific events and never repeat them. This museum does a wonderful job of honouring the lost children and educating us about respect and dignity.
