Unfinished Stories Book -1



The Khmer Rouge Genocide of 1975-79 was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 to 2.2 million people – a quarter of the Cambodian population.

This book is about the personal, untold stories of Keo Sarath and Beng Simeth who suffered appallingly during that reign of terror. It is also a story of hope, of two unassuming individuals who went on to dedicate their lives to education. We first met Sarath and Simeth in 1999, and their memories of those times have never been published before. 

The book combines Mick’s photography of the aftermath of Genocide from the now silent Killing Fields with powerful and poignant narratives from Sarath and Simeth.

smile ... a journey with the children of the world

During a vacation trip to Cambodia in 1994, we fell in love with the country and its people. But we were especially touched by the impact on children in areas still controlled by the Khmer Rouge, almost twenty years after "Year Zero".

Our personal journey led us to other countries, meeting hundreds of children, many of whom are pictured in this book.
