Heel on earth through the eyes of a child
am 28. Februar 2000
"First they killed My father" is Loung Ung's Horror filled account of her childhood stolen from her by Pol Pot's regime which ranks behind only Hitlers for it's brutality and inhumanity. It is also a story of a family's love and sacrafice for one another. A father and mother's love for thier children a sister's love for each other but most of all a little girls love for her father.
Think of Anne Frank Meets the "killing fields" and you only begin to get an idea of what this book is about.
Loung's writing is at once so simple and yet so vivid you can almost feel the shook, disgust and horror of a little girl living in what can only be discribed as hell on earth.
You can feel the confusion and fear in a little girls mind as her life of cars, TV's, phones and movies is ripped away from her and replaced with starvation, murder, bombs, gun fire and death.
PA what are communist she asks, and why do they hate us? Her Father's answer is simple and direct they are destoyers.
This book is truly a must read for everyone, least we forget and let history repat it's self.
