French Indochinese Refugees 1954




I was doing some research the other day to see what may of happened to some of the French Indochinese refugees - who had worked for France's colonial administration.
Obviously because of this action they would of been forced to flee Vietnam - when France's colonial rule ended in 1954.

I noted this interesting BBC article, which gave a somewhat sad story on how, and where, some of these unfortunate people ended up. Not much of a life in the end! But I suppose if they had been left in Vietnam they would of been sent to re-education camps - or worse been killed.
