Human Trafficking Awareness Month 2017: Genocide in Cambodia
Human Trafficking Awareness Month continues with the history of genocide in Cambodia. While the US was fighting Communism in Vietnam, there was a war being waged in neighboring Cambodia. In 4 years, from 1975-1979, 2 million Cambodians were killed under the Khmer Rouge. That’s one quarter of the entire population. The educated, religious, and wealthy were targeted in this hidden genocide. In Part 2 of “The Kingdom of Wonder,” hear one man’s testimony and learn how this part of Cambodia’s history is impacting life today.
