Hear from the survivors and perpetrators of the worst genocide since the Holocaust.
The true extent of the horror may never be known. But with the perspective provided by the passage of time, we can finally begin to understand the tragedy that befell Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge.
Bill Kurtis leads this trip to the infamous Killing Fields, where Pol Pot's regime tried to establish a pure Communist society by eliminating the ruling class, the educated class, the officer corps and a large number of the peasantry of his nation. Between one and four million people died before the Khmer Rouge was forced from power. RETURN TO THE KILLING FIELDS features exclusive interviews with people who witnessed the systematic massacres, including survivors and those who actually carried out the torture and killing. Their shocking stories offer a uniquely personal view of one of the most reprehensible chapters in human history.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM explores the legacy of the millions of victims of the brutal regime that nearly destroyed Cambodia.
