Cambodia launches Khmer Rouge app

Cambodia Launches Khmer Rouge AppThe department of Media and Communication (DMC) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh has launched a mobile app and website – Mapping Memories Cambodia (MMC) – to help the public, especially young people, learn about the important locations and events associated with the Khmer Rouge regime, The Phnom Penh Post reported.

Students at the DMC spent a year investigating the sites and interviewing survivors of the Pol Pot regime. The app marks significant locations from that time on a map and guides users to where historical events happened.

MMC enables users and survivors to submit their stories to the project team, allowing the ongoing collection of testimonies and mapping places of remembrance throughout Cambodia. It sheds light on individual memories of everyday lives during the Khmer Rouge regime that seldom emerges in the common historical narrative, creating space for public commemoration.

Users can read and listen to stories told by survivors, experts and historians in the multimedia format through articles, short documentary films, podcasts and photo galleries.

The project aims to educate today’s generation on issues such as arranged marriage, forced labour on large dam projects, religious abuse and the Khmer Rouge’s foreign policy.

MMC project manager Chan Muyhong said the app and website were created by students at DMC with support from the German Corporation for International Cooperation and factual verification by the Documentation Center of Cambodia.
