Place: Phnom Penh ​

Mrs. Ian Kim Sopheap, 53, was born in Phnom Penh and studied at Phsar Toch primary school in the Lon Nol regime. While studying, everyone heard bomb sounds, and then ran into the trench. During the Khmer Rouge regime, she was evacuated from Phnom Penh with her family by ferry to Kampong Chhnang and then to Kampong Thom by car. She later got into the children’s mobile unit. After a short time of studying, all children had to work. She had enough food to eat, and baked some potatoes. One of the things she remembers is when she saw graves.
