Description

2018 MERCYCARE ORATION PRESENTS LOUNG UNG

A daughter of Cambodia remembers

Loung’s tale of enormous courage is told in her bestselling memoir, First They Killed My Father and more recently in the Hollywood movie adaptation directed by Angelina Jolie. Following the killing of her parents, two sisters and twenty other relatives during the Khmer Rouge takeover, five year old Luong was forcibly trained as a child soldier.
Loung will recount her inspiring story of having survived one of the bloodiest episodes of the 20th century, making a new life as a refugee in America and her continuing activism to make sure those left behind are never forgotten.
