ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Pedro Pans. The Pedro Pans are the 14,048 Cuban children who fled to the U.S. between 1960 and 1962 in a political exodus. The author discusses the reasoning behind parents sending their children away. One example of a parent doing just that is Dulce, a retired teacher from Santa Monica, California who sent her two daughters as Operation Pedro Pan participants. Several narratives of people with similar experiences as well as the children themselves are included in this article.
