On May 3, 1975, Hong Kong received its first cohort of 3,743 Vietnamese boatpeople. The incident opened a 25-year history that belongs to a larger context of forced migration in modern social history. The book intertwines historical archives with personal drawings created by the Vietnamese living in Hong Kong detention camps, recapping a collective memory with its human face. The author manifests that artistic expressions, interpretation and analysis help the traumatized souls to heal, and propels the society to confront a past that has vanished without any traces of reflection. She unfolds this page of history with the hope that new insights and meanings can be attained through the conscious review and re-interpretation of the past.
