May the telling and sharing of these stories bring peace and healing to wounded spirits.

 

It was “behind the closed doors” of the Kamloops Indian Residential School in Kamloops, British Columbia, that the children—the ones who survived—suffered the “mental, spiritual, emotional and physical abuse and trauma” that was to haunt them their entire lives. Many of those who physically recovered from that place never recovered their spirits. Thirty-two people who survived Kamloops tell their stories here, “so their families and communities could learn and understand what happened…so that history is never repeated.” Behind Closed Doors needed to be written. May the telling and sharing of these stories bring peace and healing to wounded spirits.
