The Scars Remain: A Long History of Forgotten Australians and Children’s Institutions

By Nell Musgrove

The Scars Remain presents the long history of placing Australian children in institutions, putting a human face on child welfare systems which have, over the course of more than two hundred years, touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of children as well as their families and friends. It explains how institutions which claimed to care for children could do greater harm than good, and challenges the mythology of egalitarianism which often shapes Australian histories.
