In 1986, Margaret Humphreys, a Nottingham social worker, examined the application of a four-year-old woman, who had been placed on a boat for Australia by the British government.At first incredulous, Margaret discovered that it was only the tip of a huge iceberg.Up to 150,000 children, some as young as three years old, had been deported from children’s homes in Great Britain and sent to a “new life” in distant parts of the Empire until recently, in 1970.Many said their parents were dead, and parents said their children had been adopted.In fact, for many children, it was having a horrible life of physical and sexual abuse, far from everything they knew.Margaret and her team gathered thousands of families before it was too late, held the authorities to account, and the world’s attention to a scandalous denial of justice.
