Scope and Content

Provides details of abuse experienced by Witness 152 and his siblings as a result of actions by their father, nuns at Sacre Coeur Orphanage, and indiviudals at Haut de la Garenne. Notes that he and his siblings would be admitted to Care when their mother was pregnant as their father could not look after Witness 152 and his siblings by himself. Refers to physical and emotional abuse of children by nuns at Sacré Coeur, mentioning punishments for enuresis and citing an incident concerning his sister. Criticises Social Services for placing Church of England children at a Roman Catholic institution, and for placing any children at Sacré Coeur. Recalls transfer to Haut de la Garenne, and recalls instance of sexual abuse at Haut de la Garenne after which Witness 152 came to be seperated from the other children for several days.
