Cambodia

Synopsis:

Chronicles the brutality of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, from the author's forced 'evacuation' of Phnom Penh in 1975 to her family's subsequent movements from town to town and eventual separation.

Why read?

Understand Cambodia today by reading about its recent past. The horrors come to life even more because it's written from a young girl's perspective.
