Historian and author Victor Triay comes Back By the Woodpile to give us the bigger, clearer picture of what lay at the heart of the peoples’ cries.

In the early 1960’s as the Castro regime began to transform Cuba into a socialist, militarist regime, part of that including training children to become atheist Marxists soldiers. And so a plan was quietly hatched by those on and off the island to get as many children out as soon as possible. The result was Operation Padro Pan, an exodus of Biblical proportions that helped over 14,000 children flee the increasingly ruthless communist party rule. One of those children, Dr. Carlos Eire, wrote of his experiences in the books Waiting for Snow in Havana and Learning to Die in Miami and joins us Back By the Woodpile to talk about both his experiences and the future of his suffering homeland.
