Throughout the period of genocide under the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, millions of Cambodians were killed, forcibly relocated, tortured, or sent into forced labor. This beautiful and unforgettable collection of documentary photography portrays, with two authoritative essays, the human embodiment of Cambodia's deepest (and still unhealed) wounds.
