Shaded Memories

In an inimitable approach this book reveals the fading traces of the darkest moments in the history of Cambodia. Ann-Christine Woehrl’s sensitive pictures take you to the sites of terror during the dictatorship of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, the lingering memories of the genocide: prison S-21, the Killing Fields, the UN Tribunal in Phnom Penh.
