Video: Antonio Buti on why he was compelled to write the story of Bruce Trevorrow

How does one person exist between two worlds? Antonio Buti explains why the story of Bruce Trevorrow, the only member of the Stolen Generations to successfully win compensation from an Australian government, struggled with his identity after being forcibly removed from his Indigenous family.

Antonio Buti is a lawyer and law professor who interviewed people and presented submissions to the Bringing Them Home report, part of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families.

Antonio will be launching the book at the University of Adelaide on Monday 12 August. Tickets are free for this event and can be booked through Eventbrite.

A Stolen Life: The Bruce Trevorrow Case by Antonio Buti is available online at and from all good bookstores.
