We are encouraged to despise the mistrust shown and to understand their desperate situation.
Another aspect of Australian Identity shown is Racism. In this novel, when life is at its worst for the refugees in the camp, the guards and officers ordered a priest to talk to them. However, the priest could only talk to the few Afghanis who were Catholic or Christian.
The authorities would not organise representatives for people of other beliefs such as Muslims or Pashtuns. Alan Sunderland is therefore trying to get the reader to embrace multiculturalism and accept and understand different religions and beliefs.
The reader is encouraged to feel pity for them and recognition of each individual and their beliefs.
Although Alan Sunderland writes about how Australia has these horrific qualities, he also depicts that not all Australians are racist and prejudiced towards the refugees Some Australians are actually accepting and welcoming towards the refugees.
They chose a number of children to fly to Adelaide and go to a normal school, while still being restricted and protected. Sunderland writes this to show the reader that although Australia has strict policies, it can still show mercy.
Also in the novel, a group of protesting Australians come to Woomera and claim that the refugees should be let free. This is intended to encourage the reader to feel empathy for the refugees, but also to feel compassion to the protesters.
Sunderland has used an array of sophisticated techniques successfully to convey the hardships he endured in his life. Refugee is an inspiring novel of a long, treacherous journey through Australia that has changed my perspective on life and broadened my understanding of Australian Identity.
