Operation Babylift

Monday, April 26, 2010

Dana Sachs examines "Operation Babylift," the U.S. government’s plan for nearly 3,000 displaced Vietnamese children to be placed with adoptive families overseas. It was launched in April 1975, just before the fall of Saigon. In The Life We Were Given: Operation Babylift, International Adoption, and the Children of War in Vietnam, Sachs looks at how "Operation Babylift” irrevocably altered thousands of lives, not always for the better.
