Cambodia: Land of Silence

Loading...
In the mid-1970s, Cambodia was the victim of a brutal genocide, when the communist Pol Pot regime exterminated every fifth inhabitant. In less than four years, hundreds of thousands were murdered, and over a million died as a result of starvation and disease. We hear from those who lost their families as well as from former guards who perpetrated the crimes.

Sorya Sim of the Documentation Centre says "The purpose of documenting is justice and memory." The Centre collects material to prosecute the Khmer Rouge and to educate the younger generation about the events. Recently, a peace treaty paved the way for the [...]

Inside Pol Pot's Secret Prison

Loading...
Led by a former schoolteacher named Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge regime killed between 15 and 40 percent of the Cambodian population in a brutal attempt to transform the nation into a classless society. At the heart of this orchestrated campaign of terror was a death camp known by the code name S-21. Thousands of prisoners entered S-21. Only seven escaped alive. Interviews with former guards, executioners and two survivors paint a picture of the unspeakable horrors that were commonplace at S-21. The incredibly detailed prison archives open a window into the Khmer Rouge's program of genocide.

Children of the Seven-Headed Snake

Loading...
In the kingdom of Cambodia the pace of life has always been determined by the Tonle Sap, which is both a river and a huge lake. Its waters abound with fish and its flooding supports the rice crop, so essential to the peasants. Cambodians say that the Tonle Sap contains a respected yet feared divinity: the sacred Naga, a giant seven- headed snake which they must honor on important holidays. One such occasion is the Water Celebration, when thousands of farmers come with their families to enjoy the boat races as well as to barter their rice for the fish which will feed their families for months to come. After the races, the "genies of protection" must be satisfied, granting the participants and their families safe passage back to their villages and a productive year. The genies are supe [...]

Interview With Jonathan F. (Jonathan Fredric) Ladd, 1982 [electronic resource]

Loading...
Jonathan Frederic (Fred) Ladd, Colonel of Special Forces in Cambodia from 1970-1972 and a political-military counselor at the United States Embassy in Phnom Penh, explains why he was appointed to the Embassy. Ladd refers to his first impressions of the military situation and of Lon Nol, stating that the Cambodians had an amateurish army, that Lon Nol was dedicated to his country, but that he was not a strong leader. Ladd recalls the infighting that was occurring in Washington and his 1971 request to return to the United States due to his feeling that the situation was out of his control: the Cambodians were becoming discouraged and the conflict was becoming a second Vietnam War.
