MY RELATIVESBy : SUOS SODAVYCambodia/ Born 1955ARTIST CV
My twenty-nine family members were killed in this regime. I am an orphan!
The level of pain that I lived with and saw with own eyes in the regime of three years,
eight months and 20 days between 1975 and 1979 is something I am still unable to explain.
I still have questions about it. What did the leaders do? Were all the people who
lived under this regime toys that could be killed and be tortured for pleasure and at will by
those leaders? Are those people who were born to be murdered and punished by leaders innocent?
