After 4 years under the rule of the Khmer Rouge, it’s a miracle that their entire family survived as millions of people died during this time. After the Khmer Rouge were driven out, they walked for months not knowing where to go or what would happen. They would walk during the day. Find a place to sleep on the roadside at night. Ate soup with a few grains of rice and bugs.


    Thear recounts her family’s journey survival, strength and the resilience of the human spirit.

    Every Struggle Becomes a Strength

    Every Struggle Becomes a Strength

    14 million people were displaced and 1 million people died during the Partition of India. Neena Newberry shares the story of her family’s history, a time of insane violence because of a religious partition line; the separation of India and what is known today as Pakistan.

After her parents married and had children, Neena’s dad, who was highly educated, migrated (without his family) to England where he worked night shift at an ice cream factory. When the family was reunited, the suffering didn’t stop in England. Racial discrimination and ignorance affected their children in the form of bullying and physical violence. So, they picked up and moved to the US, where they had family connections and community. Such an inspirational story of courage and perseverance.
