  Democratic Kampuchea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Despite the fact that Chinese and Sino-Khmers had dominated the Cambodian economy for centuries and could be considered exploiters of the peasantry, the Khmer Rouge apparently did not single them out for harsh treatment.
Like their Chinese counterparts, the Cambodian communists had great faith in the inventive power and the technical aptitude of the masses, and they constantly published reports of peasants' adapting old mechanical parts to new uses.
In the meantime, as 1978 wore on, Cambodian bellicosity in the border areas surpassed Hanoi's threshold of tolerance.

Holocaust The genocide of European Jews and others by the Nazis during World War II: “Israel emerged from the Holocaust and is defined in relation to that catastrophe” (Emanuel Litvinoff).
Totality of destruction has been central to the meaning of holocaust since it first appeared in Middle English in the 14th century, used in reference to the biblical sacrifice in which a male animal was wholly burnt on the altar in worship of God.
In the 17th century the meaning of holocaust broadened to “something totally consumed by fire,” and the word eventually was applied to fires of extreme destructiveness.

A Recent random survey of Cambodians in the Greater Boston area conducted by the Harvard Refugee Trauma Program suggests that numbness is more frequent in the patient population than in the general Cambodian population and the level of distress experienced by patients suggests that it may be a symptom that causes survivors to seek treatment.

 Khmer Rouge
The ideology of the Khmer Rouge combined an extreme form of Maoism with the anti-colonialist ideas of the European left, which its leaders had acquired during their education in French universities in the 1950s.
The Khmer Rouge justified such actions by claiming that the country was on the verge of mass starvation as a result of American bombing campaigns, and that this required evacuating the cities to the countryside so that people could grow their own food.
Despite Cambodians' traditional fear of Vietnamese domination, the Vietnamese invaders were helped by widespread defections of Khmer Rouge activists, who formed the core of the post Khmer Rouge government.

 Yale > Cambodian Genocide Project > The CGP, 1994-2004
The Cambodian genocide of 1975-1979, in which approximately 1.7 million people lost their lives (21% of the country's population), was one of the worst human tragedies of the last century.
As in Nazi Germany, and more recently in East Timor, Guatemala, Yugoslavia, and Rwanda, the Khmer Rouge regime headed by Pol Pot combined extremist ideology with ethnic animosity and a diabolical disregard for human life to produce repression, misery, and murder on a massive scale.
Since 1994, the award-winning Cambodian Genocide Program, a project of the Genocide Studies Program at the Yale Center for International and Area Studies, has been studying these events to learn as much as possible about the tragedy, and to help determine who was responsible for the crimes of the Pol Pot regime.

 The Cardamom Project: About Cambodia
To Pol Pot, the fact that Cambodian communists had once needed Vietnamese help was so shameful that he purged thousands of Khmer Rouge cadres simply because certain KR leaders acknowledged that the Cambodian communist party was founded in 1951, at a time when the Vietnamese communists were involved in Cambodian insurgencies.
Hundreds of thousands of Cambodian families began the long march to their home villages in the hopes of finding surviving relatives.
As was soon discovered, the depressions were indeed the stuff of hell, for each marked the spot of another mass grave — hundreds of thousands of Cambodians had been slaughtered by their own countrymen.

Disregarding the will of the Cambodian people and yielding to threats of violence by the Vietnamese-installed Cambodian People's Party (CPP), a power-sharing arrangement between the winning royalist Funcinpec party and the CPP guaranteed CPP Prime Minister Hun Sen a continued monopoly on power.
It means that the U.N. is entrusting justice for the countless victims of the Cambodian holocaust to a former Khmer Rouge soldier who today rules the country through violence, intimidation, corruption and fear.
Donors should place the destiny of Cambodia in the hands of Cambodians by forcefully denouncing the CPP's ongoing subversion of the electoral process, obstruction of opposition access to the media, and use of violence and intimidation to mar the pre-election climate.
