SURVIVAL IN THE KILLING FIELDS


SURVIVAL IN THE KILLING FIELDS

HAING NGOR & ROGER WARNER    Book Number: 87689    Product format: Paperback

A young doctor in his native Cambodia, Haing Ngor saw his life transformed when the Khmer Rouge Communists, led by the notorious Pol Pot, took over his country in 1975. He and his family along with entire populations of cities and towns were forced into the countryside to become 'war slaves' in a vast gulag policed by brutal enforcers and spies. He finally escaped in 1979, resettling in the US and he went on to work in various movies and TV shows and helping fellow Cambodian refugees. This is his true story of finding love and fighting for survival. He was murdered by an LA street gang stealing a locket which contained a photo of his wife. Ngor became famous through his Academy award-winning performance as Dith Pran in the film 'The Killing Fields' but the terrible truth behind this were his own experiences in the rice paddies and labour camps. 515pp in paperback.
