Havana Times Invites Peter Pans to Visit

HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 13 — Fifty years ago an airlift began that sent more than 14,000 Cuban children to the United States without their parents.

Now mostly in the 60-65 age group, many are either rediscovering their country of birth or still maintain ties with other relatives.

Organized by the Catholic Church and fed by fear of the Cuban government’s educational system, desperate parents sent their kids to Florida where they were distributed into foster homes and orphanages around the USA.

Havana Times would like to extend a special invitation to the Peter Pan generation of Cuban emigrants to visit our website and keep up with events and currents of thought on the island, without the usual prejudices existing in pro or contra websites with an axe to grind.

Note: it is better for our format if you send horizontal orientation pictures. Even square will work but vertical is a problem.
