Hillsborough Voices Summary


Hillsborough Voices: The Real Story Told by the People Themselves by Kevin Sampson

On 15 April 1989, the world witnessed one of the worst football disasters in history occur at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield. 96 people were crushed to death and another 766 injured in a tragedy that was later admitted to have been exacerbated by police failures. Hillsborough Voices does justice to the memory of all those who died and for all those left behind. From the tragic events of the day to what unfolded in the hours, days and eventually years that followed, the book will interweave the voices of those who were there with the families and friends of those who died, and all those who have played key roles in the long search for the truth. The author, Kevin Sampson, has a long history with Hillsborough. Not only was he there as a fan to witness the horror first-hand, he also helped organise the Hillsborough benefit concert at Anfield and has close connections with the justice campaign. He has conducted exhaustive and exclusive interviews both with people who have become familiar public figures and those who will be telling their heart-rending personal stories for the first time - to bring us the full story. The book will be fully endorsed and promoted by the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and will carry the official HJC logo.

"A harrowing but sensitively handled account of the disaster and a powerful tribute" * Sunday Telegraph *
"A testament to the courage, compassion, dignity and sheer persistence of the bereaved families, survivors and campaigners...at times unbearably moving" * When Saturday Comes *
"Sampson stands back, using his craft to construct a narrative that gives the individual stories space and respect, whilst simultaneously enabling the bigger picture to emerge" * London School of Economics *
"A powerful, important book - heartbreaking and rage-inducing. It is vital that these voices are heard" -- Brian Reade
"Superb" -- Adrian Tempany
