Dith Pran, 1942 – 2008

“One time is too many.”

A moving video memoir of the Cambodian photojournalist, from The New York Times.

I remember seeing the film “The Killing Fields” in 1984 and wondering how this could happen. Then it happened in Bosnia-Herzegovina , and in Rwanda, and in Darfur. Maybe more people were killed in Cambodia than in any one place since then, but I’m not sure that the difference between 8,000 and 2 million is relevant in genocide.

  2. Thanks, Graham. I saw photocopies of that book in Cambodia and thought it looked good. Apparently it’s no longer in print here, but I can get a used copy through Amazon.
