The recent separation of Palestinian children from their adult counterparts in Israeli custody evinces parallels, in its effects and underlying justifications, with the removal of Indigenous children to boarding schools in the United States and Canada, as well as with Australia’s Aboriginal “stolen generations”. What are the potential and pitfalls of this and similar historical-geographical analogies? And what roles have such analogies already played in discourses surrounding these countries over the last two centuries?
