Catherine Appleton

Catherine Appleton has just completed her doctorate (2019) in the Faculty of Education at Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Her research currently centres on the representational issues in retelling an historic, traumatic event as a graphic novel. The Wounds of Separation tells the story of a Jewish child forced to leave her family and country on one of the nine Czech Kindertransport trains before the outbreak of the Second World War and the impact the trauma has on her life. The story revisits an almost forgotten moment in history and comes at a very relevant time. The Kindertransport evacuation of children from Europe before the Second World War is a story of forced migration; a tragedy faced by increasing numbers of children across the world today.
