THREE YEARS, EIGHT MONTHS, AND TWENTY DAYS: The Cambodian Atrocities and the Search for Justice Exhibition Opening!
Thursday, October 5th, 8 pm - 9 pm (Online)
The Institute of Holocaust & Genocide Studies at RVCC will present a virtual opening of the exhibition Three Years, Eight Months, and Twenty Days: The Cambodian Atrocities and the Search for Justice.
For three years, eight months, and 20 days, the Khmer Rouge regime, led by Pol Pot, ruled Cambodia. The group enacted a program of harsh internment and torture and subjected the Cambodian people to inhumane living conditions, starvation, forced labor, and forced marriage. David Scheffer, U.N. Secretary-General's Special Expert for U.N. Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials, former U.S. Ambassador at Large for War Crimes Issues, will offer a more detailed account of what occurred in Cambodia from 1975-1979. Ambassador Scheffer will explore the ideas of survival, response, documentation, and justice.
