Fleeing Castro: Operation Pedro Pan and the Cuban Children´s Program - new book

ISBN: 9780813016122

ID: 741725250

A stirring account of the covert effort to smuggle Cuban children into the United States in the aftermath of Fidel Castro´s rise to power, Fleeing Castro brings to light the humanitarian program designed to care for the children once they arrived and the hardship and suffering endured by the families who took part in Operation Pedro Pan.From late 1960 until the October 1962 missile crisis, 14,048 unaccompanied Cuban children left their homeland, the small island suddenly at the center of the Cold War struggle. Their parents, unable to obtain visas to leave Cuba, believed a short separation would be preferable to subjecting their offspring to Castro´s totalitarian Marxist state. For the children, the exodus began a prolonged and tragic ordeal: some didn´t see their parents again for years, and a few never did.Victor Triay traces this story from its political and social origins in Cuba, setting it in the context of the Cold War and describing the roles of the organizations involved, especially the Cuban Children´s Program, established by Father Bryan Walsh of Miami. This history of Pedro Pan -- the largest child refugee movement ever in the Western Hemisphere -- is presented with the excitement of an international thriller and the pathos of a heartbreaking family drama.
