Operation Pedro Pan: The Untold Exodus of 14,048 Cuban Children

Synopsis

Between 1960 and 1962 over 14,000 children were sent out of Cuba alone by desperate parents who feared for their children's future under Castro. Yvonne M. Conde, herself a Pedro Pan child, has recorded hundreds of their diverse stories and experiences from American foster homes and orphanages. These children and their families have opened up to her like never before to share their feelings about this painful time in their lives. This book investigates the events and key figures surrounding the exodus, including the roles of the Catholic church and the State Department, and the extent of the CIA's involvement.
