stories of hope, survival and resilience

Between 1975 to 1992, almost two million Vietnamese risked their lives to flee oppression and hardship after the Vietnam War, in one of the largest mass exoduses in modern history. Escaping by boat, many were captured and brutally punished, and hundreds of thousands died along the journey. This population of people are known as the ‘Vietnamese Boat People' and these are their stories.


These are inspiring stories about the incredible journeys that were taken, from a generation of people that overcame life-threatening situations in search of peace, freedom and safety. Join us in documenting the personal stories of the Vietnamese diaspora. Listen Now 


"If the details and stories are not amazing enough, the prelude makes it even more personal for the listener."
