65th year commemorating of Tubabao

Tuesday, October 18 was the official grand opening of the “Tiempo Russo Tubabao Island” exhibit, dedicated to the 65th year commemorating the arrival of the last ships from the White Russian refugee camp on the Philippine Island of Tubabao to the United States.   This marked the end of the long-awaited 2 year stay on the island awaiting permanent residency for the near 6000 refugees.  Russian Connections is one of the sponsors of the exhibit and hope you find a minute to check it out and learn more about the complex history of Russians in the United States.
