The Smithsonian Institute brings you:

Exit Saigon, Enter Little Saigon
….and it’s coming to Ithaca!

Come to the Rothschild’s Building, 215 E. State St. at the Ithaca Commons to see the Exit Saigon, Enter Little Saigon Welcome Reception on September 25 at 6 PM!

At the end of the Vietnam War, many Vietnamese were forced to flee as a result of their ties with the South Vietnamese and American anti-communist forces, thus Exiting Saigon (now known as Ho Chi Minh City) and Entered Little Saigon in the United States. Not only did Vietnamese people come to the United States, but a rich Vietnamese heritage came as well.

Exiting Saigon....

Exiting Saigon....

...and Entering Little Saigon!

The Smithsonian Institution created the Exit Saigon, Enter Little Saigon exhibit to showcase images of the Vietnamese-American experience in the years since 1975.
