Imagine to live your life underground; to work, eat, and sleep in holes without daylight. Picture yourself crawling from one hole to the other through muddy and dark tunnels with 50 centimeters of diameter, while B-52 bombs explode only ten meters above your head.
I have heard about the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot, the ‘brother number 1′, before my visit to Cambodia. I knew – or at least I thought I’d know – that they ran the country long time ago. Now, after my journey, I know better: This communist party and its leader didn’t rule in days of old but from 1975 to 1979. During these four years between 1.4 and 2.2 million people died in this part of the world.
