This section is designed to build up knowledge about what life was like in Kampot province under the Khmer Rouge.

From what we know already this varied by time – some parts had been under the Khmer Rouge since the early 1970’s – and also by location. Kampong Trach seems to be mentioned a lot and we know of some mass executions that took place in or close to Kampot itself.

There are other locations such as Koh Sla and Mt La’ang that are mentioned as being part of KR history since the 1950’s.

We intend to gather case studies from secondary and primary sources and eventually use these to draw some more general statements about what went on in the region until 1980.
