Dith Pran (Dr. Haing S. Ngor): "We must be like the ox, and have no thought, except for the Party. And have no love, but for the Angka. People starve, but we must not grow food. We must honor the comrade children, whose minds are not corrupted by the past." -- from The Killing Fields (1984) directed by Roland Joffé
Survival in the Killing Fields by Haing Ngor, Roger Warner -- "'Nothing has shaped my life as much as surviving the Pol Pot regime. I am a survivor of the Cambodian holocaust. That's who I am,' says Haing Ngor. And in his memoir, Survival in the Killing Fields, he tells the gripping and frequently terrifying story of his term in the hell created by the communist Khmer Rouge."
