Soon after, a chance meeting led to the discovery that his mother had died. It would be another six years before he got the letters from his mother that proved that she had never stopped looking for him.Letters that had been opened and read by the authorities but deliberately kept from him.This is the shocking story of how a child's life was destroyed and of a stolen generation, snatched in the night and forbidden from seeing their families.
