For Cambodians:

I cry for the little people who will always carry the guilt of having survived, of not being able to have done more for those most dear to them, enduring torture that will not end. How can wounds like these ever heal?

Years of Horror/Days of Hope



After the demise of Democratic Kampuchea in 1979, massive exodeus of Cambodian survivors began moving toward Cambodian-Thai borders. Some were forced and used as human shields by Khmer Rouge. Others sought to find food or safe haven beyond the Killing Fields. Along the journey, they were brutalized and slaughtered in the lawless jungles by Cambodian guerillas and Thai soldiers.

Many were confined in various refugee camps for many years without hopes and dreams. Life in refugee camps was miserable and arduous. Some succeeded in their quest, but others failed. Painful memory will continue haunting those survivors for the rest of their lives.

This project is established in order to preserve the memories and legacy of Cambodian refugees - alive or deceased. So, Cambodian generations should never forget. Please review these documents and galleries with solemn and reverent respects.
