The Killing Fields of Cambodia - Are they Worth Remembering?

- The Killing Fields of Cambodia - Are they Worth Remembering. “I know of no parallel to the conditions which have been experienced in Cambodia over the past decade to any other experience I have had. In the case of post-war Europe, there is the vast tragedy of the concentration camps . . . but thank God, the world had an immediate reaction and to this moment, there has been a sensitivity to events which happened forty years ago. But, in the case of Cambodia, for some extraordinary reason, I am left with the strong impression that the world wants to forget the tragedy in Cambodia – they want to forget it!” SIR ROBERT JACKSON, deputy Secretary-General, United Nations January 1983 (qtd....   [tags: Killing Fields of Cambodia]
