Cambodia: a question of relief

11-12-2009 FilmRef. CR-F-00049

In late 1979, as a massive assistance operation got underway for survivors of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, the ICRC took a film crew to the devastated country, to show the desperate situation and what was being done to help. This video (shot on 16mm film) shows the situation in Cambodia itself and across the border in Thailand, where many Khmers had taken shelter.
