Earlier this century, thousands of Aboriginal children of part descent were taken away from their families by the government and placed in institutions. Some were never to return home. Between Two Worlds looks at two Northern Territory 'Half-caste' institutions run by the Commonwealth government: the Bungalow in Alice Springs and the Kahlin Home in Darwin. Through oral histories, documents and photographs, drawn mainly from the Australian Archives' collection, this book shows what happened to the children who were placed in these institutions. It traces their journey from one place to another and one culture to another, and follows the development of government policy which shaped their lives.
