More than 2,000 children were taken to France from the Indian Ocean island of Reunion between the 1960s and early 1980s, as part of a French government plan to repopulate rural areas. Promised a better life and an education, many suffered sexual and physical abuse. Some, now middle-aged, are seeking an apology and compensation from the French state. Katie Razzall travels from France to Reunion with two women searching for the families they lost more than 50 years ago.
