Operation Peter Pan
The Secret War Against Cuba
A seven year old boy holds back tears as he says goodbye to his family forever. That's the last image that Marina has of her brother. She's had no news and no contact since. But her family is not alone; forced separation of families was American foreign policy. Operation Peter Pan forced thousands of Cuban children into exile during the Cold War. Orchestrated by the US secret services (with the Catholic Church), it was designed to weaken Castro's communist regime.
