Hillsborough Voices The Real Story Told by the People Themselves Synopsis

On 15 April 1989 the world witnessed one of the worst football disasters occur at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield: 96 people were crushed to death and another 766 injured in what later was admitted to be caused by a shocking failure by police. To mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster Hillsborough Voices finally 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 firsthand, 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.
