There’s one day that is remembered across Cambodia — a tragedy that continues to haunt people like Loung Ung. The genocide that began on April 17, 1975, in the city of Phnom Penh, left agonizing wounds that the promise of a new life couldn't fully heal. We follow the story of Loung Ung, a human rights activist and author of the best-selling book "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers," which decades later was turned into a film by actor and filmmaker Angelina Jolie.
In this episode, Loung recounts her harrowing escape from terror and political instability as a child soldier, and how ultimately turned her trauma into activism.
Learn from expert voices: Ben Kiernan, the Founding Director of the Genocide Studies Program at Yale and Brad Adams, the Executive Director of Humans Rights Watch Asia Division.
