Place: Siem Reap
Mr. Chhaom Naret was born in Siem Reap. He was was 7 or 8 years old at the time of Lon Nol. He was happy when he saw American planes drop bombs. Later, the Khmer Rouge made him work in a children unit. He encountered a lot of difficulties because he was forced to collect Siam weed, make fertilizer with mound soil and carry soil to the hoop in baskets that were larger than himself.
