Summary Decades of military oppression in Burma have led to the systematic destruction of thousands of ethnic minority villages, a standing army with one of the world"s highest number of child soldiers, and the displacement of millions of people. Nowhere To Be home is an eye-opening collection of oral histories exposing the realities of life under military rule.
