Scope and content

This slide show consists of 80 color, sepia tone,and black and white slides. The slides depict life in Cambodia -- its people, culture and the events of the decade of the 1970s and early 1980s, the after effects of the Vietnam war which spilled over into Cambodia (1970-1975), the rule of terror under Pol Pot that followed (1975-1979), the plight of over 800,000 refugees by 1980, and the re-building efforts that followed. There are scenes of farming, commerce, rural and city landscapes, poverty, war, cruelty, destruction, military actions, prisoners and refugees. The presentation ends with slides showing Mennonite Central Committee's involvement in the country -- through sending material aid (laundry soap for hospitals, canned beef distributed through the Red Cross, and school kits for children). Included with these slides is a script and an audio cassette (see cassette #2315).
