Voices of Vietnam

KALW Presents a documentary from With Good Reason Radio, part of the Virginia Humanities Project.

Voices of Vietnam - A Lost Homeland

Leaving Vietnam
The end of the war and American withdrawal also marked the final days of a homeland for more than a million South Vietnamese people. We tell the story of the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam as seen from both sides of the war.

Little Saigon
Some of the Vietnam War’s most enduring legacies are the Vietnamese communities of America, who arrived en masse after the Fall of Saigon. In our final episode, we explore the stories of these neighborhoods and hear the accounts of South Vietnamese who watched their homeland disappear from abroad.
