About

Thirty-five years ago today when the Khmer Rouge took control over Cambodia. Under its rule between 1975-1979, the quarter of Cambodia’s population killed by the Khmer Rouge constitutes the largest death toll in percentage terms of all the genocides in modern history. Could any of us ever make sense of what happened?

Youk Chhang is the Executive Director of the Documentation Center of Cambodia and founder of the Sleuk Rith Institute a survivor of the Khmer Rouge’s “killing fields.” The Centre of South East Asian Studies will host a seminar featuring Chhang and chaired by Dr. Peter D. Sharrock on Wednesday, October 8th at 5:15pm in the Khalili Lecture Theatre at Russell Square: College Buildings on the SOAS University of London campus.
