Surviving the Cambodian Genocide

Ee and Hong 1976 – Their first week after arriving in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Ee and Hong

These are my brothers Ee and Hong, their first week in the USA 1976.

The picture was taken in the backyard of Mr. and Mrs. Hammer (Mark and Audrey). The Hammer family was so brave to take my brothers into their home, as they were two young teenage boys who knew very little of America and hardly spoke a word of English.
