New-to-me: an online archive of Cambodia photography. “In 1975, when the Khmer Rouge regime took power in Cambodia and isolated the country from the rest of the world, the Ramas were ordered to leave their home in the city of Battambang. “They told us that the U.S. would bomb the city and that we would only be away for a short time,” Vira Rama tells ucaews.com. Despite the order from Khmer Rouge soldiers to not take too much stuff with them, they left with all their family photos. More than 40 years later, Vira Rama, who was 10 years old when Pol Pot’s regime took power, still isn’t entirely sure why his parents kept them.”
