Generations in Exile

Tibetans began fleeing armed Chinese oppressors/occupants in the 1950s. A great many followed His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama who fled into exile in India in 1959. They have settled in various places, most notably Bhutan, Nepal and India, and more recently the USA, UK, Australia, Belgium, and Switzerland.

The first generation to be born in exile is now in their 60s, and most of them have children, grandchildren, and some even grandchildren, who are the fourth generation born in exile.
