  • EVENTS LEADING UP TO GENOCIDE
  • Prior to the Cambodian Genocide, Cambodia was was a neutral country in the Vietnam War. Due to this neutrality, 750,00 Cambodian lives were lost. Cambodia's leader, Prince Sihanouk joined the Khmer Rouge but that led to a Civil War in which the Khmer Rouge won.
  • During the Khmer Rouge's ruling, approximately 1.7 million people died. The regime was very brutal and would execute anyone who would resist, "non-valuable" members of society, innocent kids, or civil servants. The majority of the deaths came from starvation, but the regime would also scapegoat, overwork and obviously murder the innocent Cambodians. All of this was a major cause from Pol Pot's vison, the leader of the Khmer Rouge envisioned Cambodia as a classless society- a communist utopia.
  • HOW THE GENOCIDE WAS CARRIED OUT
  • INTERNATIONAL/ US RESPONSE
  • There was close to little help from the United States and other international countries. At the time, The United States was primarily itersted in winning the Cold War. As for the other countries, they had their own government dealing with their own problems.
  • HOW THE GENOCIDE ENDED
  • The suffering and pain in Cambodia came to an end in 1979. The Vietnamese army invaded and fought to overthrow the Khmer Rouge.
  • After the genocide in Cambodia, those who survived deal/dealt with psychological trauma. They prefer not to talk about their terrible experience. One can say that Cambodia as a whole is in denial, because they choose not to teach about it and act as if it never happened.
