Why has no-one heard about it? The organised deportation of children in care.
Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds and with little regard for her own well-being, Margaret Humphreys reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
Children as young as four had been told that their parents were dead, and been sent to children's homes on the other side of the world. Many were subjected to appalling abuse. They were promised oranges and sunshine: they got hard labour and life in institutions.
Oranges and Sunshine is based on the novel Empty Cradles by Margaret Humphreys.
