Cambodia govt launches Khmer Rouge map app

The department of Media and Communication (DMC) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh has launched a mobile app and website – Mapping Memories Cambodia (MMC) – to help the public, especially young people, learn about the important locations associated with the Khmer Rouge regime.

Students at DMC spent a year investigating the sites and interviewing survivors of the Pol Pot regime. The app marks significant locations from that time on a map and guides users to where historical events happened.

MMC enables users and survivors to submit their stories to the project team, allowing the ongoing collection of testimonies and mapping places of remembrance throughout Cambodia.
