Surviving Prison in Cambodia
Listen to the:
More than three decades ago, the Khmer Rouge wiped out nearly a quarter of Cambodia's population. Now, a handful of the regime's leaders are finally facing justice at an international war crimes tribunal.

The first defendant is best known by his revolutionary name "Doik." He admits to running the S21 prison, where 17,000 people were tortured and executed. But the wheels of international justice turn slowly. Doik was arrested almost 10 years ago; it's taken that long for Cambodian and UN officials to bring him to trial.

Reporter Jared Ferrie met with two survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime. One of them is also a survivor of the infamous S21 prison. He brings us their stories -- and tells of how they've found ways to heal.
