I am among those people who suffered from the torture during the years of 1975-79 The Khmer Rouge took over the Khmer Empire in 1975 as Democratic Kampichea ending a 600-year monarchy The leader Pol Pot swiftly placed the entire population into rural communes where death was the penalty for disobeying orders I used to live in constant fear and pain because of the Khmer Rouge When the Khmer Rouge gorilla took over they did not start to do any killing yet However they didnt hesitate in making my whole family work for them 24 hours a day without giving us a chance to rest Each day I slept about one to two hours at most When I was a little boy at the age of eight I use to get up at one oclock in the morning to go to the barn and herd the cows I also had to go to the rice field and pick up loose crop after harvest to the barns and to take out the cow manure My father was very surprised and happy with my ability to handle the workload so he gave me a Garuda patch Garuda was a mythical bird that was a sign of courage At that time I worked and work and I never received ample sleep Their reason for our constant work was we needed to produce more food or our country might fall into a state of famine I remember those times as being a young boy with the health of an old man I suffered from mosquito and other insect bites every day because I was forced to work without any break My health was so bad that I always suffered from all kinds of malaria diarrhea malnutrition and more Since the Khmer Rouge came to power we never got to eat rice we only got to eat liquid rice which hardly contained any rice in it for it
