Chea Raet, an 83-year-old woman who lives in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, clearly remembers the horrific events surrounding the Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge regime.
Her husband, a soldier during the French period, died under the demanding work of maneuvering motorboats to help soldiers cross the river.
“I just cried and cried,” she said. She remembers moaning, “My husband is dead. If my kids die, I will too.”
