British Home Children Forgotten in Mass Graves
This is a poignant and disturbing story of 75 children whose remains lie buried, unmarked and virtually forgotten
in a pair of mass graves at an Etobicoke cemetery.
They were British home children, sent from the U.K. to Canada.
"Victorian-era kids sent to Canada to build a
better life often suffered a sad fate; now a research group is trying
to tell their stories." [thestar.com]
