Country of Origin: Cuba

My Dad left Cuba when he was 3 years
old. His family had flee because his father
was working under cover against the
dictator Castro. His family was lucky to
get on a plane because his aunt had left
on a raft and died on the way over. On
the plane you were only allowed to bring
the clothes on your back. They made it to
Mexico and later moved to Johnstown.
That is my dad's story
