29. Ms. Nok Seng Soum and Mrs. Chan Son
Place: Siem Reap
At age 14, the Khmer Rouge put Mrs. Chan Son in a cooperative where she had to dig up tree stumps. Then she had to dig canals and tear off seedlings. In the evening, she had to train for Khmer Rouge shows that extolled revolutionary politics and discredited the Lon Nol regime. Later, the Khmer Rouge made her work in a special unit. In wartime, her unit had to leave first. However, she never went to any battle because she always found excuses.
