Cohen Conversation: Reflections on the Killing Fields

Mason 240
Friday, · -

About the event: This Cohen Conversation will feature Bodie Barton, who will share his experiences as a survivor of the Cambodian genocide. Barton and his family were among those brought to one of the notorious labor camps run by the Khmer Rouge -- camps where millions of people were killed between 1975-1979 under the Pol Pot regime. Barton and his older brother survived and were subsequently placed in a refugee camp in Thailand; they were later adopted by an American couple and raised in Amherst, NH. This event is part of a series of special events about the Cambodian genocide being hosted by the Cohen Center this spring.

About the speaker: Barton earned his B.A. in Psychology from Keene State College in 1997. He is currently Program Director of Gaining Ground, a social service agency of the Rutland County Parent and Child Center in Vermont. Barton lives with his wife Jessica in Danby (VT).

This event is presented by the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies in partnership with the KSC Archives. A light lunch will be provided to in-person attendees.
