Tibet Documentation, a project that has been documenting the story of the early Tibetan refugees, the gradual rebuilding of their lives in India and Nepal, and the re-establishment of their cultural and religious institutions in exile, released a book today in Dharamsala, India, titled, ‘Exile.’

Lobsang Gyatso Sither, the editor of ‘Exile,’ speaks to VOA about the book, which documents the first 30 years of exile, up until the Dalai Lama received the Nobel Peace prize in 1989.

Tenzin Geyche Tethong, former minister and personal secretary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Ven Tenzin, who worked at the Tibetan Children’s Village since its establishment in 1962, shared their personal memories of those difficult years.

Tashi Tsering, a scholar and Director of Amnyen Machen Institute, spoke on the central role the young 14th Dalai Lama played in shaping the direction and mission of the diaspora community, and also on context of photography and recent Tibetan history.
