A very interesting exhibition. I'm sure many of the children had a better life than they would have had in the UK.

I am proud to be English. We endured a lot but came out stronger and happy.

I have been very interested in the child migrant story since reading 'Empty Cradles' by Margaret Humphreys. As a child carer - it makes me sad to read the stories of families not knowing of the others' existence. I am glad of the 'apology' by Gordon Brown, but still feel the UK should never ever have carried out this deed. God bless to all concerned.

Sorry is not enough, but better than never. On their own should be published to all over the world. Awesome job!
