Tour leaders: Staff of the Cambodian Association of Illinois and the Cambodian American Heritage Museum

Established in 2004 under the auspices of the Cambodian Association in Illinois, the Cambodian American Heritage Museum and Killing Fields Memorial raises awareness of the Cambodian genocide and celebrates the renewal of Cambodian community and culture here in the United States. The group will view and discuss the new exhibition, Remembering the Killing Fields, which traces the Khmer Rouge’s rise to power and reign of terror. In just 3 years, 8 months, and 20 days, more than two million Cambodians died from ruthless slaughter, starvation, and disease. This exhibition honors not only those who died, but also those who survived to keep their memory alive.

(Limit 20 people) $30 members, $35 nonmembers
