Father François Ponchaud, 79, discovered Cambodia in 1965. Witness to evacuation of Phnom Penh in 1975, he was the first person to alert the West about the scale of the crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge, especially in his book, Cambodia: Year Zero.
On the occasion of the commemoration of the fall of the Cambodian capital, Father Ponchaud will lead two conferences: “Cambodia, from Independence to 1975” and “The Khmer Rouge Era, from 1975 to the release of Cambodia: Year Zero”.
