Let's Not Go Back to Cambodia
In 2010 I was introduced to a Cambodian Genocide survivor, Loung Ung. Her survival story, written in her book "First They Killed My Father", penetrated through me, connecting her genocide experience to the one my family went through in the 1940's in Russia. I was pulled to visit Cambodia and see how people cope with the aftermath of the recent war. In 2013 I traveled through small pockets of the country meeting locals and hearing their survival as well as their present day life stories.
