This research aims to compare the experience of children who ended up in Portland, OR through Operation Pedro Pan versus children that ended up in different places. Operation Pedro Pan was an exodus of unaccompanied minors from Cuba to the United States from 1960 to 1962 because of Fidel Castro who was a Communist coming into power. The research involved oral histories with Portland Pedro Pans, and adding a bit more information to Cuban history.
