Summary
Soorgul and Amir were two of many Afghan children sent to Tajikistan during the Soviet occupation of their country. When the Soviet Union collapsed, the civil wars that broke out on both sides of the border left the children stranded. They were viewed by suspicious Afghans as "Lenin's children" or "little Soviets." Their release came a few years ago when Canada accepted some of them as refugees. In The Sweetest Embrace Soorgul and Amir return to their country in search of their families
