An education for the British,
This review is from: The Forgotten Children: Fairbridge Farm School and Its Betrayal of Britain's Child Migrants to Australia (Paperback)
I am nearly halfway through this book. It has become a kind of shrine to me. It should, it 'must' be read by every Briton wherever they are, wherever they live because they would otherwise never know what Britain did (and didn't) do for the welfare of it's poorest children. The thousands they just exported overseas. 'Poor' doesn't mean 'bad'. After discovering about our 'forgotten children' I wanted to know more. Information has been suppressed in the UK for obvious reasons. Even Google's search engine cannot come up with much so it is very important to find and to have David Hill's book. Amazon UK is out of stock on it - sure - can't have too many copies around in the UK. It is instantly available from Amazon Germany. When you get to read it consider what else your school, your colleges and universities and especially your government never told you. Then perhaps read Anna Whitelock's "Mary Tudor" to learn things we were never told about our 'Bloody Mary'. Such books helps one to see through the lies and the two-faced'ness. At page 74 of Hill's book a reference is made to a Cottage Mother who is German and, along with her German husband, are referred to as being "more cultured" than the rest and who didn't take to hitting the children. Page 74 explains some of the reason why I am there.
Happy reading... it won't be!... exciting? You'll have to look elsewhere... just read it for the truth!!!
(I suggest Ms Overton go back to her back scratcher)
I have also read Antony Beevor's "Stalingrad", Leon Uris's "Trinity" (re-read), Colum McCann's "Zoli" and Kathryn Stockett's "The Help". My advice to Britons is not to waste their time on glossy tripe for they have a lot of false education to undo.
