The front cover image and the image below have been taken from the AHRC’s The Forgotten Children report.
Most families with young children proudly display their artwork on the fridge for all
to admire. Often the drawing will include a smiling sun beaming down on a happy scene. Our front page image, drawn last year by a primary-school-aged child living in detention on Christmas Island, depicts a horrifying reality. Nothing but tears and a fence, arms outstretched. Let’s hope people will be so moved by this image they will stick it
on the fridge and remember the cries of the children no one can hear.
