Brian Freemantle and his roll in rescuing 100 orphans in Viet Nam

Published on Jul 6, 2012 by Open Road Media

“April 1975. We knew that the war had been lost. The South Vietnamese would occupy Saigon at any moment.” remembers Brian Freemantle—the humanitarian and journalist who organized the removal of 100 babies and children from a small British orphanage as the Vietnam war was ending and the fall of Saigon imminent.

In this new video from Open Road Media, Brian Freemantle shares his thoughts on the importance of that mission and speaks with one of the rescued orphans, Viktoria Cowley, now grown.
