Marriage under the Khmer Rouge
Some half a million people are thought to have been forced into marriages by the Khmer Rouge, but because of the

nature of the crime many victims have found the subject particularly difficult to discuss. As members of these forced unions grow

more comfortable talking about their experiences, and the Khmer Rouge tribunal hears testimony on the subject, a clearer picture is

beginning to emerge.

In these three films, the Post talked to victims, including one of the country's most

powerful businessmen, to lawyers participating in tribunal proceedings, and to experts who have sought to understand the cultural

and psychological effects of Cambodia's history of forced marriage.
