THE SAME MINDSETBy : CHHIM SOTHYCambodia/ born 1969ARTIST CV
The Fascist Hitler regime nearly wiped out the entire Jewish race, causing turmoil across most
of Europe and the whole world. Years later, in Cambodia the Pol Pot regime followed Hitler’s
mindset by killing its own people, causing unspoken tragedy in Cambodia and destroying the
soul of the nation.
