John Ciorciari quoted in Voice of America article about Khmer Rouge tribunal, exhibit

Friday, May 7, 2010

John Ciorciari spoke to Voice of America Cambodia about a recent Ohio University exhibit and lecture series chronicling the United Nations-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal. The Documentation Center of Cambodia planned this event to raise awareness about Khmer Rouge, the communist ruling party of Cambodia from 1975-1979 accused of socially engineered genocide. As part of this exhibit, Ciorciari gave a lecture at OU about the importance of the tribunal. He explained that the United Nations-backed trials can bring about a sort of reconciliation that is “about personal healing and about spiritual, moral, emotional, psychological” renewal.
