Holocaust and Genocide Studies

A guide to resources on the Holocaust and other instances of genocide

Overview

The Cambodian genocide of 1975-1979 resulted from the radical Marxist policies of the Khmer Rouge regime. The regime, seeking to establish an agrarian socialist state, nearly exterminated Cambodia's intellectual and professional classes. 1-1.5 million people were murdered, starved to death, or lost to disease ("Cambodia," "Khmer Rouge," Encyclopedia Britannica).
