In 1993 Neil Richards was renovating an inner Sydney terrace house when a box of documents fell out of an old chimney in the laundry out house. He was just about to chuck them out, when his friend decided to take them home for a second look. Inside were hundred of letters in both English and Italian, pleading for the return of Italian Australian men interned in camps during WWII. A hidden chapter of Australia's WWII history had just come out into the light.
