Transit Camps

The refugees at the border camps eventually got interviewed, accepted, and settled in a country: Australia, Denmark, French, Sweden, Malaysia, and others. Many got accepted by the US. All the lucky refugees had to be transported to Panatnikhom camp for a month or so to complete paper work and health screening before flying to the final destination.

For those who went to the US, they had to go to either Bataan or Galang to study English and learn about the life in America

Below are the links to the news and pictures of the camps that had become part of our journey to freedom. Gaylord Barr captured those moments when he worked at the camps as an English teacher.
