My pictures
by: Scott Canada

I have been working for a long time trying to recover missing school photos in hopes of finding the "class photo" that contains my abuser. The woman who repeatedly beat me in the classroom.

I have even gone as far as explaining it to my old classmates the reason for my persistence in the matter and from all of the work I have recovered only a couple.

Its unbelievably frustrating when I beg people to please search their attics or parents home and with all the promises comes heartbreak as only one or two bothered to even try. Lots of promises.
These are public school photos and all the children should have a copy.
I too am trying to recover the missing memory of what happened to me in that school in 73. I wish I could at least identify her. Get her name.
I can only share what has happened to me. I cant even find publicly distributed school photos.
Good luck Nora.

It's hard
by: Suzanne

Nora, I know it can be hard to try and track down these pictures in the hope of removing them from circulation etc, however in this day and age It seems like we could be fighting a loosing battle.

I was sexually abused by my babysitter (and later on, by his friends) for 10 years. During which time he photographed and video taped the abuse. I have finally found the courage to report him to the police here in the UK. One of the interviews was to try and help the local police here identify any of the millions of images they have on record as being of me. It's a long process and I do sometimes think it is hopeless, but I am sticking with it.

I wish you luck in your quest and hope that your local police force can help you. Remember, never give up the hope.
