One of the earliest (1986) accounts from the survivors of the Pol Pot regime, "The Stones Cry Out" seems to have set the style and standard for another more recent child's-eye perspective on the same era, "When Broken Glass Floats". The minute details of everyday life, not abstract poltical assessments, form the basis for our childhood memories. The author's account carries an unvarnished realism which draws the reader into her film-like image of daily life under threat of starvation and execution. This is probably as close as a reader can come to the truth of events in Cambodia during 1975-79. Oral histories such as "The Stones Cry Out" are perhaps the best way for survivors of human rights abuses to indict the perpetrators. Sadly, tribunals driven by international politics are unlikely to have the same impact as the simple testimony of a victimized child. Highly recommended reading for all those with an interest in human rights, Cambodia, and Southeast Asian culture.

Important book about an horrible event. Gave it as a gift to a young college student.

This book is amazing...my husband had read it years ago and convinced me to purchase it. I have read it multiple times since..

A fascinating, non-political account of the Cambodian holocaust.

Great book!

This book made the horror of the Khmer Rogue for the Cambodians real. A must read.

I am a 12 year old reader, and this book was heart-breaking. It is so sad that something like this hapenned, and so many peoples' lives were destroyed. Molyda Szymusiak's story makes me realize how lucky I am to enjoy my freedoms.
Published in 1984 by a young girl who lived through the horrors of the Khmer Rouge, this starts when the family are uprooted from their middle class life by gangs of black-uniformed 'Mekongs' to traipse across the countryside and participate in forced labour on starvation rations - planting rice in shoulder-deep water and clearing mud for roads.
As those around her die of cholera and malnutrition, and the casual executions of Pol Pot's regime become commonplace, the author somehow manages to survive - just - until she ends up at a refugee camp and is adopted by a French couple (hence her European name.)
The terrible experiences the author underwent makes one want to automatically give this *5. However although a clear and concise account of events, it felt just a little too detached, almost as if she's relating something that happened to someone else, and loses a little of its power on that score.
But most certainly a valuable work, recording a horrific story that we should never forget.
