Overview

More to the Story: conversations with refugees by Rosemary Sayer

More to the Story looks beyond negative media reports, political speeches and fear-mongering statistics to tell human stories of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia.

Julian Burnside, AO, QC writes in the Foreword to the book, 'The great importance of this book is that it gives a real human face to the people we are treating as criminals. It's uncomfortable, but inescapable, message is: The people we are mistreating are human beings just like us."

Rosemary Sayer writes with empathy and humility of her interviews with refugees from Burma, Afghanistan and South Sudan. Together, they tell stories of persecution, violence and starvation; families separated for a time, or forever; the desperation of thousands in refugee camps, awaiting relocation under humanitarian programs; the perilous journeys by boat of those for whom waiting would have meant death; life in mandatory detention; and the challenges of starting over in Australia. None of these people chose to be refugees; all of them chose survival.

 A powerful, moving and inspiring account of human resilience that every Australian should read.
