Loung Ung was only 7 years old when the soldiers came and took her father. Later, separated from her mother and siblings, she was forced from child labour camp to child soldier camp, living under unbearable conditions and far too young to make sense of the horrors of war. Although she survived, the war raged on in her mind… until she made a very difficult choice.
