I didn't know much about this.

Nine Years After Stolen Generations Apology Aboriginal Child Removals Higher Than Ever

"The Stolen Generations refer to the systematic forced removal of thousands of Aboriginal children from their families by the Australian government between 1909 and 1970. The children were placed into the care of non-indigenous families and state-run homes for boys and girls.

It is widely acknowledged as one of the darkest chapters in Australia’s history.

But decades after the government stopped the practice of removing Indigenous children because of their race, the number of young Aboriginal people in out-of-home care is at crisis point."
