PHNOM PENH


“Phnom Penh, a vibrating capital still trying to overcome the remembrance of a horrifying past. The Cambodian Genocide, carried out by the Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot from 1975-79, finished with the lives of an estimated 1.5-3 million people, tortured and brutally killed in extermination camps throughout the country. Inspired by communist ideals, the Khmer Rouge intended to convert Cambodian society into an agrarian socialism, killing generations of its intellectuals and political opponents. Phnom Penh, is a vivid example of Cambodia’s efforts to take courageous steps towards a brighter future.”
