Item description for The Tears of My Soul: The Story of a Boy Who Survived the Cambodian Killing Fields by Sokreaksa S. Himm & Jan Greenough...

"Lord God, I have tasted enough bitterness in my life." Sokreaksa was a young member of a large family in Siemreap City, Cambodia. When the country fell to the Khmer Rouge in April 17, 1975, his family was forced to join the exodus to the jungle villages. As the young Khmer Rouge soldiers consolidated their grip, the deaths increased. Anyone who complained; anyone educated; anyone an informer disliked; all were "sent to study" - killed. Teenage boys were brainwashed into amoral, vindictive thugs. Finally the day dawned when the family was marched to a grave ready dug in a jungle clearing; one by one they fell as the hoes hacked down. Sokreaksa, gravely wounded, was covered by the bodies of his brothers and sisters. His executions walked away, laughing. That morning Sokreaksa climbed from the mass grave. Hatred burned in his heart. Could he possibly forgive his family's killers?

Publishers Description

In 1975, the Khmer Rhouge seized control of Cambodia. The next years were a nightmare of brainwashing, torture, murder, and revenge. Few who were educated, disliked by government officials, or questioned the Khmer Rhouge, survived. As the son of a teacher, Sokreaksa S. Himm and his family were marked for death.

The day came when the family was marched to a grave already dug in a jungle clearing: the Khmer Rhouge used hoes to hack them down one by one. Sokreaksa, critically wounded, was covered by the bodies of his family. His executioners walked away laughing. That night Sokreaksa climbed from the mass grave to begin a quest to regain more than just his earthly life. Through a series of extraordinary events he made his way to Thailand and then to Canada, where he found faith in Christ. But hatred burned in his heart. Could he possibly forgive his family's killers? It's a vivid insight into the remarkable process of healing and forgiveness

Reviews - What do customers think about The Tears of My Soul: The Story of a Boy Who Survived the Cambodian Killing Fields?

Absolutely incredible  Aug 24, 2007
I met Reaksa accidentally a few days ago after returning from my first visit to Cambodia. Amazing but true. I was given his book and finished it almost immediately. Cambodia has a history that I believe very few truely know and almost no one understands. I strongly recommend this book. It is so difficult to believe that these events occurred so recently.
Amazing Story  Jul 23, 2007
A great read for all, for it reveals the truths of actual events of the killing fields in Cambodia. We cannot be blind to world events and history. For this book brings insight on human nature and the power of evil and love. And How utimately love wins out!
Worth reading  Jun 4, 2007
An unusual account of life and loyalty under the Khmer Rouge, and afterwards.
Unbelievable Communists cruelty revealed  Apr 12, 2007
Sokreaksa was an eleven-year old Cambodian boy when the Pol Pot regime took over. His parents and nine siblings were killed before his eyes. The Communists thought that he was dead as well. After they left, he got up and managed to survive. He eventually immigrated to Canada in 1989. He became a Christian and wrestled with the problem of pain and the nature of evil. Sokreaksa returned to Cambodia in 1999 to teach at a Bible School. The story was gripping and sad. The details of the Communist's cruelty was horrifying. Fortunately, the book does not end on a sad note. It has an uplifting ending.
