Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1, Klagenfurt University (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Topics in Culture: Australia - Indigenous Cultures, language: English, abstract: The chapter of the so called 'Stolen Children' is certainly one of the darkest in Australia's history. White people determined by ethnocentric convictions attempted to assimilate Indigenous people and, therefore, destroyed countless lives. The film 'Rabbit-Proof Fence' by Phillip Noyce (2002), which is well-known and often screened in classrooms, impressively depicts the fate and suffering of three of them and gave the impetus for the present paper. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the policy of removing children from their families did not accomplish any 'good work' but happened with the aim of controlling and assimilating Aboriginal people.
