Title

Four Cuban boys sled in the snow in Columbus, Ohio

Description

Between December 12, 1960 and October 23, 1962, over 14,000 Cuban children arrived unaccompanied in Miami. Through the Operation Pedro Pan program headed by Father Bryan O. Walsh, Cuban parents expedited their children's expatriation ahead of their own for fear of communist indoctrination. The Pedro Pan children were placed in homes in 100 U.S. cities, and most were reunited with their parents during the Freedom Flights.
