My daughter was only ten when we escaped, but all her life she was curious about the events that led us leave our country and become refugees. I wrote notes in Hungarian, as I remembered them, and she decided to...

         Being a victim of Vietnamese Communists myself, and now living in Canada, I have to say sincerely that the maltreatment I received in their various concentration camps for several years pales by comparison with what Mr Lee Van Tri (aka Nguyen The Witness) had been subjected to during his escape by sea from Vietnam in 1989.   I wish therefore to share with you his story enclosed below.

We would like to express our gratitude to the government and the people of Canada for accepting the Vietnamese boat people refugees into the country. Sincere thanks to Canada, a land of hope that has granted us freedom and the chance to a a new life filled with opportunity. May this memorial remind us and future generations of the hardships of the past, the trials of those who fled over oceans to escape Communism, and of the promise of Canada, the land of refugees.

Thus, they were undesirable elements, "enemies of the people," is how a devout communist might have put it.
