Intro

It's a sparkling day by the train station. Ready to get on the train, you suddenly hear van rolling into town. People getting out, dressed in all black, start gathering people. You hear that the Americans are going to bomb the city. People start panicking and running all around to get their thing and leave the city. You start doing the same as they are. This is only the beginning of one's journey through the the Cambodian Genocide. The book Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick is about the Cambodian Genocide and Arn's struggle through it. Arn has to go through multiple challenges throughout the book to survive. He has to become a child soldier, eat insects, and more. The Cambodian Genocide was actually carried out by the government; they were a communist country after the civil war. This meant that everyone must be equal, so they burned all of the money, made everyone a rice farmer, then proceeded to kill off all the educated.

The point of this magazine is to analyze and interpret the Cambodian Genocide. Also, how it started, the background of the Khmer Rouge, struggles of the genocide, and being a child soldier. We will present a documentary, poem, two children's books, and a song about the Cambodian Genocide.

How did the Cambodian Genocide Start?

Song: Killer Rouge/ Enslaved To Die

By: Blake

\Killer Rouge/

Who were these men that

teacher taught in school?

Why would they use the

children as tools?

Angka?

*Angka on the speakerphone*

\Enslaved To Die/

Intro: You are all --- enslaved to die!

Chorus: Khmer Rouge, Killer Rouge, here’s bad news, you will lose…

Now give me all the rice!

I will win, I will sin, I’m admin, I’ll break your shin…

Angka made you all - enslaved to die!

Bridge: Burn the banks to the ground!

No money to be found!

Verse 1: The black uniform is coming for you.

They fall and die, if you fall, you die, too.

Give me your riches and freedom and life.

Schooling is worthless, we’ll keep you in strife.

Verse 2: Keep you stupid and weak, you won’t rebel.

We live a good life, as you scream in hell!

No more family and friends, no more thought.

Angka is watching all, you will be caught!

Verse 3: You won’t ever do anything at all.

Communism is how you live and fall.

Get sick or run or feast, and you will die.

Now pick all of the rice, and never cry!

Death by Khmer Rouge

The Bad Bad Men in Black

By: Austin

"Shakespeare's Prodigy"

By: Anthoney

Children are crying,

People are dying,

They kill us in fear of death.

Life isn't as peaceful as it once was,

Infants, orphans, so sad nowadays.

Scared of living,

Suicide when I close my eyes.

Run away to peaceful days,

To see father upon the gate.

Don't go, I want to die.

I need this more than I need life.

To be somewhere happy for myself,

Let me die before I suffer.

As I lie with a cloth,

Suffocate my life,

To see my father once again.

This poem is in the perspective of a young woman captive in a prison camp during the Cambodian genocide who has suicidal thoughts.

The poor will only get poorer,

A pen, rags, no smiles.

No proper home, just a shack.

The rich will only get richer,

Clean bodies, nice rags, just smiles.

Houses on the hills, not a shack.

Generations passed down.

Grandfather's dearest possessions,

Father's greatest achievements,

Son's biggest fears.

Every generation something new,

But one thing stays the same...

The poor only getting poorer,

The rich only getting richer.

The gap cannot be together,

A boulder that can't be pushed.

Only way we're equal is when we're six feet down,

Under the boots...

Of the Khmer Rouge.

Five years, a tsunami,

Swimming through the pain.

Holding our breathe,

Life underwater.

How did we get here?

The resistance fallen,

The Khmer Rouge has risen.

Drowning in our own oxygen,

Each breathe felt as if we're breathing in water.

I really hate them.

The Khmer Rouge, men of the devil.

Killing us for fun.

The sky was so blue.

Now just a shade of gray.

Ashes burn into the sky.
