In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee (2010) by Deann Borshay Liem
Her passport said she was Cha Jung Hee. She knew she was not. So began a 40-year deception for a Korean adoptee who came to the US in 1966. Told to keep her true identity a secret from her new American family, this eight-year-old girl quickly forgot she was ever anyone else.
Guest speaker: Kimberly Chung, Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow, Korea Institute, Harvard University
