Cambodians in Amherst – A History of the Khmer Community – Exhibit Opening

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In the early 1980’s members of the Amherst community organized to give refuge to survivors of the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia. Faith communities and their partners helped many Cambodian families escape the desperate circumstances they faced in refugee camps in Southeast Asia and resettle in Amherst. This exhibit tells the story of the courage and compassion of both communities, and the journeys they took rebuild lives destroyed by war and genocide. MORE INFO
