When the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia in 1975, Arn Chorn-Pond was nine years old. He was separated from his family and thrust into the darkness of Cambodia's ghastly "killing fields" for four years. Now, after living in the U.S. for 20 years, Arn returns to Cambodia to save its once-outlawed traditional music from extinction. A study guide, published by Facing History and entitled Lost Childhoods, is available to accompany this resource.
