    Foreign by Land, Native by Heart

    Four refugee families tell their stories about coming to San Antonio. Their accounts describe the conditions that caused them to flee their native countries, and how they have adapted to their new homes. The families profiled in the exhibit have come to Texas from Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. The exhibit will recount the circumstances of the refugee process, such as minimal luggage, a plastic bag containing the family’s vital records, and samples of the necessities and mementos they chose to bring with them on the trip.
