I feel for the children migrants cause they didn't get to grow old and live with their parents and other family.

In 1988, when I lived in London, I worked with a woman whose little brother had been migrated to Canada during World War II. After the war, his sponsoring family refused to send him home. My friend didn't see him for 40 years. This exhibit really brings to light what her family went through. Thank you.

The exhibition on child migrants 'On their own' was moving and beautifully put together. Stories of survival against adversity. An eye opener indeed.

Poor kids! Wrenched away from parents and all they knew and sent to a strange place all alone.

This exhibition makes you realise how traumatic this event was for all these innocent children. Another form of control by the so-called "professionals." How sad.
