FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER. by Loung Ung. The horror of the Cambodian genocide presented in an eloquent and powerful narrative by a young witness to the Khmer Rouge atrocities.

Click to EnlargeFIRST THE KILLED MY FATHER. by Loung Ung. REVIEWS: "This book left me gasping for air. Loung Ung plunges her readers into a Kafkaesque world--her childhood robbed by Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge--and forces them to experience the mass murder, starvation and disease that claimed half her beloved family. In the end, the horror of the Cambodian genocide is matched only by the author's indomitable spirit.? -- Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking ?This is a story of the triumph of a child's indomitable spirit over the tyranny of the Khmer Rouge; over a culture where children are trained to become killing machines. Loung's subsequent campaign against landmines is a result of witnessing first hand how her famished neighbors, after dodging soldier's bullets, risked their lives to traverse unmapped mine fields in search of food. Despite the heartache, I could not put the book down until I reached the end. Meeting Loung in person merely reaffirmed my admiration for her.? -- Queen Noor ?Despite the tragedy all around her, this scrappy kid struggles for life and beats the odds. I thought young Ung's story would make me sad. But this spunky child warrior carried me with her in her courageous quest for life. Reading these pages has strengthened me in my own struggle to disarm the powers of violence in this world.? -- Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of Dead Man Walking ?In this gripping narrative Loung Ung describes the unfathomable evil that engulfed Cambodia during her childhood, the courage that enabled her family to survive, and the determination that has made her an eloquent voice for peace and justice in Cambodia. It is a tour de force that strengthens our resolve to prevent and punish crimes against humanity.? -- U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, congressional leader on human rights and a global ban on landmines ?Loung has written an eloquent and powerful narrative as a young witness to the Khmer Rouge atrocities. This is an important story that will have a dramatic impact on today's readers and inform generations to come.? -- Dith Pran, whose wartime life was portrayed in the award-winning movie The Killing Fields
