Dark Dreams Australian Refugee Stories Written by Young Writers Aged 11-20 Years
Dechian, Sonja, Millar, Heather and Sallis, Eva, Editors
Written by children and young adults and selected from a nationwide school competition, this anthology of essays, interviews, comments and short stories imaginatively recreates the experiences of young individuals who came to Australia as refugees. From escaping the Holocaust, surviving boat journeys from Vietnam, living in war-torn Croatia and Bosnia to fleeing oppression in Afghanistan and Iraq, these stories are a representative sample of asylum seekers’ experiences in Australia over the last 50 years.
