The USC Soah Foundation Institute and the USC Levan Institute cordially invite you to the opening reception for the Documentation Center of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge Trial Exhibition.
The Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) is the major source of documentary evidence for the tribunal established by the government of Cambodia and the United Nations to try senior members of the Khmer Rouge for crimes against humanity. DC-Cam has mounted a traveling exhibition of photographic and archival materials to provide information about the trial.
On April 14, 2010 DC-Cam's Khmer Rouge Trial exhibition will be opened at 5:30 p.m. at USC's Von Kleinsmid Center Library for International and Public Affairs.
Though many, if not most, Cambodians are aware of the trials, there remains confusion in Cambodia, as well as internationally, about the identities of the accused, the structure and policies of the Democratic Kampuchea (the communist state established by the Khmer Rouge from 1975-1979), the relevance of the proceedings to suffering experienced at the local level, and the legal nuances of how the tribunal works.
The opening ceremony of the exhibition will include remarks by USC Shoah Foundation Institute Executive Director Stephen Smith; USC School of International Relations Lecturer Kosal Path; USC Levan Institute Director Lyn Boyd-Judson; and Cambodian genocide survivor Danny Vong.
A reception will follow opening remarks.
Please RSVP by April 12 to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (213) 740-2950.
Special thanks to the USC Libraries and USC School of International Relations for their generous support.
