it was amazing

Haing Ngor portrayed the journalist Dith Pran in the film "The Killing Fields." The tale Haing Ngor tells of his own suffering at the hands of the Khmer Rouge makes the film look extremely mild in comparison. In fact, he adds reader alerts at the heading of some chapters more sensitive readers may wish to skip. He is faced with choices no one should ever have to make. He witnesses atrocities that would drive lesser men to unending, bitter rage. He somehow survives and emerges with his compassion intact.
