A Memorial to Our Ghosts


In 2005, former Vietnamese refugees who had stayed on Pulau Bidong, a Vietnamese refugee camp off the northeastern coast of Malaysia, returned and erected a simple memorial they called "The Memorial to Boat People". This memorial paid honor the Vietnamese refugee experience and gave thanks to the many organizations and people that helped the Vietnamese refugees. Six months later, the memorial was completely destroyed and discarded. No traces remain except the concrete rubble from the support structure that held the engraved granite pieces in place.
