Hearts of Freedom: Stories of Southeast Asian Refugees

Festival Hall, 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Impacted by the Vietnam War, the Lao Secret War, and the Cambodian Genocide, millions of refugees from Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia were forced to flee their homelands and to seek safety in other countries. Hearts of Freedom: Stories of Southeast Asian Refugees tells the stories of these survivors, in their own words and through their unique perspectives, adding to the fabric of the Canadian history of immigration.

The Hearts of Freedom exhibition tour is funded in part by SSHRC and private funders.
