Stolen Generations' Testimonies

Listening, deep listening…so the healing can begin

The ‘Stolen Generations’ Testimonies’ project is an initiative to record on film the personal testimonies of Australia’s Stolen Generation Survivors and share them online. By allowing Australians to listen to the Survivors’ stories with open hearts and without judgement, it is hoped, more people will be engaged in the healing process. The project has been created with the aim of producing a national treasure and a sacred keeping place for Stolen Generations’ Survivors testimonies.

To the Survivors of the Stolen Generations, we want to thank you for sharing yourselves and your stories with us so that we can feel and understand your pain. 

It was an honour to hear and film your testimonies more than a decade ago and it continues to be an honour to listen to them today. Thank you for giving us all the opportunity to practice deep listening.

We acknowledge that your pain may never fade away. We also acknowledge what you have lost. Family and culture are among the most treasured aspects of our humanity. We hope that you gain a little strength in knowing that there are people who recognise and admire how you have managed your devastating tragedy.

The board of the Stolen Generations’ Testimonies Foundation and myself send you our deepest respect.
