"One day, we were doing labour in the field. And we were so quiet. All you could hear were the sounds of the hoe. And suddenly, I see two men with guns. Those were Khmer Rouge soldiers. We hardly see soldiers during the time. That’s the only time that I saw soldiers carry guns. They walked to a young man not far away and they took that guy, walked to a bush in the woods close to where we worked. Everybody pretended to see nothing but we watched from the corner of our eye. About half an hour later, we saw the two soldiers walk out from the woods and we never saw that young man again."
