In Brief: KR textbook to reach schools

A textbook on the history of the Khmer Rouge is expected to begin

circulating among high schools across the country in the next few days

as the Ministry of Education finalises their review of its contents.

The book, which was printed with the support of the German embassy,

will be the first to provide both students and teachers with an

in-depth guide to events under the 1975-79 Democratic Kampuchea

government. The first publication - 3,000  copies - will be funded by

the Soros Foundation's Open Society.
