Memory books

Memory books were available on the day of the National Apology for people to mark the occasion with their comments, thoughts and reflections. The memory books were located in the marquees on Federation Mall.

For those who were not able or willing to attend the National Apology in Canberra, you can email your comments, thoughts and reflections to the address below. The department will then transfer them into the memory books.
