Description:
Stolen, beaten, deprived of his liberty and used as child labour, Bill Simon's was not a normal childhood. He was told his mother didn't want him, that he was 'the scum of the earth' and was locked up in the notorious Kinchela Boys Home for eight years. His experiences there would shape his life forever. Bill Simon got angry, something which poisoned his life for the next two decades. A life of self-abuse and crime finally saw him imprisoned. But Bill Simon has turned his life around, and in Back on the Block, he hopes to help others to do the same. These days Bill works on the other side of the bars, helping other members of the Stolen Generations find a voice and their place, finally putting their pain to rest.
