OPERATION PETER PAN: EXODUS OF CUBA’S CHILDREN
A spectacular CIA manipulation
Between 1960 and 1962, 14,000 children were shipped out of Cuba to the United States by their panicking parents who hoped to join them later. The reason for this hysteria? A skillfully orchestrated rumor claiming that Fidel Castro intended to "nationalize" the country’s children.
This film tells the story of a spectacular CIA blackops initiative, Operation Peter Pan, aimed at overthrowing the Castro government.
