“ALTHOUGH TWO MILLIONS WERE KILLED, FIVE MILLIONS MORE SURVIVED TO TELL THEIR STORY. THE PERPETRATORS OF THESE CRIMES ALSO SURVIVED AS WELL.”
There are 5,143,386 Khmer Rouge survivors (33.16% of the total population in 2017) from 196 districts in Cambodia. Source: Cambodia’s Census’s Ministry of Planning, 2016-2017.
The Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) will continue to document the stories from Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge survivors. Over five million people survived the genocide and many individual stories remain to be told.
We look forward to working with the Cambodian government to help document these stories and preserve the memory of those who suffered and died. We must accomplish this work not only for the victims and survivors, but also the next generation.
