By Frank Rayal on March 27 2010
Format: Paperback
The book is a compilation of short stories from child victims of the genocide. The similarities of what they had to endure is all too evident - a testament to the methodical and deliberate approach taken by the Pol Pot regime to 'reprogram' the Cambodian society. Reading this book will give you a very good idea of what people there had to go through between 1975 and 1979. I also recommend reading "First They Killed My Father" by Loung Ung and "When Broken Glass Floats" by Chanrithy Him who also got her story in this book.

This book of memoirs is deeply moving with one eulogy to a mother which I will never forget. It brought me to tears and crying out loud. Books such as these should be read by our youth before they enlist in the armed services. Naive Americans such as Jessica Lynch might not be so swept up by the manipulative promises of military recruiters if they became more informed before they enlist.

This is a good introduction for anyone who wants to learn about life under the Khmer Rouge. The stories may be different, but they all provide a vivid detail of children struggling to survive Pol Pot's regime.

Format: Paperback
I read a lot of books Cambodia. This is yet another collection of stories about people who survived the holocaust. My heart is always touched by such stories. These types of books are always similar even though the stories are specific to individuals there are common themes. If you are interested in more personal accounts there are 2 others which I would recommend. "When Broken Glass Floats," and "First They Killed My Father."
