PARADISE WON AND PARADISE LOST:

PARADISE WON AND PARADISE LOST:

50 Years after the Asian Expulsion from Uganda

ByJake RodriguesSusan Rodrigues

On 4 August 1972, President of Uganda, Idi Amin Dada announced that those of Asian descent who were living in Uganda had 90 days to leave the country. Most were forced to leave their homes with little money and very few possessions and had to start life all over again. This year (2022) marks the 50th anniversary of the expulsion of the Ugandan Asians. This book is both a collection of stories from children and young adults who were affected by Amin's decree and a culmination of years of research into the sociopolitical effects of the expulsion on the Ugandan Asians and the countries in which they resettled. These stories are personal, precious and are at the core of some unique family histories.
