Khmer Rouge & Killing Fields

Cambodia has a turbulent recent history, especially during the 1975-1979 period when an extreme communist organisation known as the Khmer Rouge ruled the country. During this period nearly 2 million people died as a direct result of the Khmer Rouge policies and extreme brutality. This holocaust is still difficult to comprehend today.
