Cambodia - Three decades after the great refugee escape and The Last stronghold
In Cambodia, Anlong Veng the last stronghold of the Khmer, the differences between a country, Cambodia under totalitarian rule and the renewed vigor of life are under the magnifying glass as the author tries to find out what moved the leaders of the brutal revolution to exterminate so many of its own people. Into the heart of its last stronghold Anlong Veng he finds friendly and amicable people who talk openly. The connection of the Cambodian people with their glorious past, Angkor Wat Complex, he also puts under the microscope in an effort to find out if that past anchored in the psyche of its people provided the fertile ground for such extraordinary contemporary out of human bounds, no limits, oppression; this in the light of the author’s first encounter with fleeing Cambodians to Thailand where he met them by the thousands and was moved to tears more than three decades ago.

Frans Welman is a photojournalist and documentary filmmaker from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He started out as a clinical psychologist with a preference for cross-cultural psychology. Armed with that inclination, he went on a journey that carried him from West Papua to Peru, and eventually to the doorstep of Nagaland. Working in the prominent Dutch anthropological Royal Tropical Museum education department for many years brought the conviction to stand by those indigenous peoples who, due to post-colonial effects, have yet to attain their right to self-determination. Frans Welman brings these peoples and environments they live in to light as his never-ending journey continues.
