Synopsis

April 1975 stands as one of the worst days in the history of Cambodia. That is the day the Khmer Rouge soldiers overthrew the corrupt regime of Lon Lon. Literally, overnight, the whole population of Cambodia was thrown into the streets and were told to move to the countryside under the ruse that America was going to bomb the cities. Once the population was in the country the Khmer Rouge tortured and starved everyone. Those that did not die from starvation were worked to death. Millions of people simply disappeared never to be heard from again. This is the background of Seng Ung's story. Somehow, Seng managed to survive and make it to America where he has become the quintessential American success story

I Survived the Killing Fields: The True Life Story of a Cambodian Refugee
Average rating
4.5 / 5
January 24th, 2014
This country has been torn in two and the people with it. I cannot believe how one man could have that much power. To hear the story from a person that walked through this is amazing. I have a new respect for the many that endured such a horrific atrocity and then to listen to them speak about it is so sad but amazing. A recommended read. You will be a changed person.
