Website on Khmer Rouge History To Be Launched on January 7 Victory Day

A new website on the history of Khmer Rouge genocidal regime: www.khmerrougehistory.org will be officially launched on January 7 Victory Day with an aim to provide the public, particularly students and foreigners, with access to all information and data related to the history of the Democratic Kampuchea (1975-1979).

Documentation Centre of Cambodia (DC-Cam) will officially put in to use this website tomorrow on the day of the celebration of the 38th anniversary of January 7 Victory Day over the Khmer Rouge regime.

This bilingual (Khmer and English) website gathers over 1 million documents ranging from video, photos to books and films. It is divided into three sections - a brief of important events from the foundation of Khmer Rouge regime to the process of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal; explanation of words used in the regime; and biography of Khmer Rouge cadres, survivors and those who have lost their lives during the regime.

Supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and DW Akademie, it took DC-Cam about three years for the website preparation.
