To fund research into the history of the abasement, abduction and deportation of children globally in the languages of the subject countries

by Howard David Epstein in London, England, United Kingdom

I have written the first chapter (85 pages) on the abasement, abduction and deportation of children from the UK to its colonies - some 350,000 over almost 400 hundred years. Of course, Britain is not the only country which has this lamentable history. A similar number of children were taken from their parents by the Franco government in Spain from "unsuitable" republican parents over many years and given to fascist party members. This requires research in Spain by Spanish mother-tongue researchers. There are several other countries with a sinister history in relation to its children, such as Argentina, Chile, Ireland, Nazi Germany, Russia, Romania and others. Each area demands specialist language and research skills. All funds raised will be spent on local researchers, who will be tasked to provide their sources and an English translation of the fruits of their research.
