Synopsis

Alive in the Killing Fields Surviving the Khmer Rouge Genocide by Nawuth Keat

Alive in the Killing Fields is the captivating memoir about a young boy who defied the odds and survived the invasion of Khmer Rouge rebels in Cambodia.

Nawuth and his remaining relatives were eventually captured and enslaved by Khmer Rouge fighters. They lived through physical abuse, hunger, and terrible living conditions, but their sense of family always gave them strength to fight on and eventually escape Cambodia.
