Khmer Rouge

Yesterday in geography class we discussed the Khmer Rouge and watch a small video about it. Here is a small rundown about the Khmer Rouge, it took place in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979, led by Pol Pot and Nuon Chea. Khmer Rouge made attempts at agricultural reform, while enforcing absolute self-sufficiency, even in the supply of medicine. Violent and brutal executions and torture carried out by its soldiers against perceived rebellious elements. The schools in Cambodia do not teach the history of this, and many believe it has never happened. There are books and other artifacts that prove Khmer Rouge existence, but the government would like it to be forgot and never spoken about.  This short video tells more.
