|Let us hope we can all draw courage from Pran's harrowing ordeal|
This memorial website was created in the memory of Dith Pran, 65, born on September 27, 1942 and passed away on March 30, 2008. We will remember him forever.
"Dith Pran, brought to international prominence in the movie The Killing Fields, was a true survivor. During the brutal rule of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia during and after the Vietnam War, Pran worked as a reporter, helping American Sydney Schanberg teach the rest of the world about Cambodia's struggle. HIs unbelievable courage allowed him to survive as a Rouge worker and inspire millions."
