While the Cambodian genocide officially ended in 1979, the lack of accountability
and public education about the genocide have affected how the memory of the events
has been transmitted from generation to generation. This project explores how young
adults in a former Khmer Rouge stronghold in the north of Cambodia are thinking about
the past and, in consequence, the present and the future of their country. In particular,
the project asks: What does it mean for the young to be born into a society where
so much trauma occurred? In particular, what does it mean for offspring of likely
perpetrators to be born to parents with a strong association to a regime responsible
for roughly 2,000,000 deaths of fellow Khmer and Cham Cambodians?
