“If anybody was educated, if you could speak a different language, if you wore glasses, you were executed.”
Mey’s mom had to make herself ugly and unappealing so that she wouldn’t be a target of rape.
Children were taken away from their families, brainwashed and trained as soldiers to fight for the Khmer Rouge
Entire families were massacred and millions of people died from illness, execution and starvation.
