A truly moving exhibition of a subject I knew very little about, I admit. A story - hundreds of stories - that must never be lost.

This exhibition tells the truth. As a child deportee (not migrant - I had no passport, no birth certificate) I was given no choice and was sent to Dhurringile (VIC) then Kilmany Park. We must never allow this to happen again.

I feel privileged to have shared in these poignant moments of innocent children sent on a sea of lies to the other side of the world. God bless them. Well worth the visit.

Thought provoking and heart wrenching. The children were so brave. Well done on producing a most informative exhibition. Very well illustrated. May this never be repeated.

Wonderful exhibition. I really enjoyed the combination of indidivuals' emotionally-charged stories and the broader thematic contextualisation. Also thought that analysis of the current political climate and efforts to apologise and memorialise was fascinating.
