David Turkon, associate professor of anthropology
An Associated Press article about the effort to retrieve personal and family records for the Lost Boys of Sudan was picked up by many media outlets, including The Washington Post. David Turkon, who took part in the project to organize the records, said some of the documents have provided the names of forgotten family members in a potential first step to a reunion. Some experience intense emotional reactions to seeing photos of themselves from when they were in refugee camps more than two decades ago. "To be able to look at your own eyes at this time in your life, these are terrified young children," Turkon said. "You can just see it in their faces ... It's terribly important for a lot of people."
