Surviving the Cambodian Genocide

Afro Ee 1979 Omaha airport - My oldest brother who had become very Americanized. His extraordinary hair-do froze all my emotions when I first saw him after 3 years.

Afro Ee

When I arrived to Omaha Airport on June 20 of 1979, I was overwhelmed with mixed emotions and anticipation of seeing my brothers Mark Chhi (Ee) and Ken Chhi (Hong) again after 3 years of not seeing them or knowing anything about them. When I caught my first glimpse of Ee and his extraordinary hair-do, all my emotions were frozen.
