“If we do not talk about it, if we do not remember, then the world will never know. And that has made me speak about it.”

Stories of Survival: Finding Refuge in Cincinnati

May 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

 

A Speaker Series presented in partnership with the Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education and RefugeeConnect

Participate in a dialogue with a student who escaped the hostile regime in Burma as an ten year-old child along with her two siblings. With a paid guide, they made their Burma-Thailand-Malaysia escape by car, boat, and foot, and reunited with their parents in a refugee camp where they lived as a family for two years before being granted refugee status and resettling in the U.S.

Burmese residents fleeing religious and ethnic persecution have become the biggest refugee group arriving in the U.S. Many Burmese are Christians in a Buddhist majority country, and almost all are from minority ethnic groups.
