Dith Pran on Genocide

Dith Pran, a photojournalist and political activist who survived The Killing Fields in Cambodia, and whose experience was narrated in the 1984 film by the same name, has died at 65. You can revisit his photographic work here, and watch a talk he gave in 2006. Here, Pran recounts what happened in Cambodia — how The Vietnam War spread to Cambodia, empowering the murderous Khmer Rouge — and questions whether we’re generally getting closer to making genocide a thing of the past.
