Vietnam remembers over 3,000 killed in Cambodia’s Pol Pot war


Viet Nam Express | 1 May 2018

Only three people from an An Giang’s commune survived the killings 40 years ago, according to historical records.

The southern Vietnamese province An Giang commemorated the death of thousands of people during the Khmer Rouge war on Monday, 40 years after the massacre.
Khmer Rouge soldiers attacked Ba Chuc Commune across the Cambodian border on April 18, 1978, which was the 12th day of the third lunar month, and killed 3,157 civilians during 12-day occupation, chasing after those who tried to flee into pagodas and up mountains.

Vietnamese commemorate deaths by the lunar calendar, and the Ba Chuc victims have been remembered every 16th day of the third lunar month, which falls on May 1 this year.
Only three people from the commune survived the killings, according to historical records. The ceremony, which involved firing torches, beating drums, and showing a documentary film at the communal funeral house, was attended by a large number of locals.
Between 1.7 million and 2.2 million people are believed to have died under the Khmer Rouge, which sought to turn Cambodia back to “year zero” in its quest for a peasant utopia.
In January 1979, the Vietnamese army, along with the Kampuchean United Front for National Salvation, overthrew the genocidal regime, ending the three and half year-long nightmare of the Cambodian people.
Pol Pot, the brutal leader of the regime, died in jail in April 1998, reportedly due to heart failure.

    The world still own Vietnamese an apologies as nobody cared about these massacres. They instead cared for the continuous exist of Khmer Rogue genocidal regime more.

    Then we have some genocidal denial and haters who blamed Vietnamese for this and that. I wonder how those who keep blaming Vietnamese for causing Khmer Rogue's genocide would explain about this event (and many other)?

    I am praying to God to punish the Khmer some more. Every years, so many Khmer got killed in Thailand. Should Khmers learn and become grateful to the Vietnamese who were their true saviors and protectors?

    Let see... Last year, 2017 Vietnamese math team took 3rd place in the International Math Olympiad while Khmer math team could only finished 105th out of 111 countries. Clearly, Vietnamese are superior over Khmer.

      I thought Khmer Rouges were the killers. Khmer are famous for Khmer Rouges and Pol Pot. Sick, sick, sick. Something wrong with Khmers.

    If you do an image-google for "Cambodian skull", you will see hundreds and hundreds of horrific images of Cambodian skulls stacked high in the thousands, and tens of thousands.

    I plead to your people to improve yourselves. You are horrible and keep making horrific mistakes. You make Asians to look terrible.
