Operation Pedro Pan: The Cuban Children's Exodus

May 28, 2019

From: 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM

Free event by invitation only. RSVP required.

This documentary film illustrates the story of more than 14,000 unaccompanied Cuban children who left their homeland from 1960-1962 in what was, at the time, the largest recorded child refugee exodus in the Western Hemisphere. Interviews of former Pedro Pans, Pedro Pan mothers, caretakers and historians were conducted, capturing thoughts about life in Cuba before 1959, the drastic changes brought about by the Revolution, their arrival and adaptation to life in the U.S., and their reflections of their lives some 55 years later.
