First they killed my Father

"A daughter of Cambodia remembers" We purchased this book to tell support the unit studies about human rights, that then look at the Khmer Rouge. It is the personal story behind the historical facts, and will give you a heart, probably a broken one concerning people that live through such horror.
This is the story of the daughter of a high ranking government official pre Pol Pott, its the story of a families desperate fight for survival and how the fight was lost, and yet won. Its harrowing- yet hopeful. It is about courage and love in the face of unspeakable brutality.
