The Vietnamese refugee experience is a part of Vietnamese history that must be remembered and shared. After the fall of Saigon, millions of Vietnamese people fled the land and went to the seas. Some paid the ultimate price, while others were sent to refugee camps throughout Asia. Galang in Indonesia was one of the largest refugee boat people camps. Some people have spent almost 10 years there awaiting a new parent country in the west, such as America, Canada, Australia, or Denmark. Today, Galang Ex Vietnam Camp is a sleepy tourist attraction that rarely gets any visitors. Luckily, I met Abu Galang, who grew up here and hung out with the Vietnamese kids. He showed me around and gave a more thorough tour and answered many of my questions. Either way, this experience was eye opening for me and allowed me to at least be where the refugees were. Second generation Vietnamese people must take note of such history.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to make this video possible.
