Behind the killing fields : a Khmer Rouge leader and one of his victims by Gina Chon( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a historical textbook about the Khmer Rouge regime, nor is it a story based solely on facts, for much of it comes from the perspective of Nuon Chea. This account delves inside the mind of a man who presided over violence in the name of creating utopia and is still able to rationalize the atrocities. It is our hope that this story transcends the Cambodian context to also tell the tale of a man who made the ultimate moral transformation a human being can make. Nuon Chea did not begin his life with a vision to destroy his nation. And the crimes perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge, like other tragic events in history, cannot be explained through ideology alone. The leaders of such regimes are shaped by their personal experiences, which permeate their policymaking. And their good intentions and their best theories can become horrifically perverted in practice

One day at Po Chrey : anatomy of a massacre( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The UN estimates 3000 were killed in the Khmer Rouge Po Chrey massacre. But journalist Thet Sambath tracked down several perpetrators for the first time and discovered the truth is much more alarming. "I created a relaxed atmosphere so they didn't suspect what was about to happen", describes one ex-Khmer Rouge soldier. "I saw my uncle in the group. I was scared I would be implicated and die alongside him, so I avoided his glance". Award-winning journalist and genocide survivor, Thet Sambath, is known worldwide for obtaining Khmer Rouge confessions on camera. The evidence he gathered for this report suggests the massacre at Po Chrey may have been the greatest single day atrocity since World War Two, exceeding even Srebrenica. The blank stares and half-smiles of the soldiers jar disturbingly with the horrors they are calmly confessing to. Revisiting a pond that was once over-flowing with bodies, perpetrator In Thoen recalls, "scalps were flying, shredded by bullets. The stench of blood was too strong so I stood upwind". A local farmer remembers how as a young boy he played with the severed heads of his neighbours. Putting these accounts to Nuon Chea, Brother Number 2, he shrugs. "I don't deny it happened. But I didn't know at the time."
Voices from the killing fields( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Khmer Rouge slaughtered nearly two million people in the late 1970s. Yet the Killing Fields of Cambodia remain unexplained. Investigative journalist Thet Sambath spent a decade gaining the trust of the men and women who perpetrated the massacres. From the foot soldiers who slit throats, to Pol Pot's right-hand man, the notorious Brother Number Two, Sambath records shocking testimonies never before seen or heard. Having neglected his own family for years, Sambath's work comes at a price. But this is a personal mission. He lost his parents and siblings in the Killing Fields, and on his journey to discover why his family died, the real story of Cambodia's tragedy emerges
