Kampuchea collection

The Kampuchea collection was made available at the Asia Library in 2001 and was collected by Israel (Izzy) Young, a member of the Sweden-Kampuchea Association.

The collection consists mostly of a large number of newspaper clippings and documents from a variety of sources from 1967 to 2000, along with about 70 books. The majority of the books are in English, about 20 are in French, and a few are in Swedish.

The newspaper clippings and documents are organized chronologically, with an emphasis on the 1970s. Some documents are organized by subject, for example document from the Swedish Committee on Vietnam, Laos and Kampuchea, the trials of Pol Pot and the Voice of Cambodian Nationalists. A large amount of the documents are in French.

To see the collection, please contact the staff at the Asia Library.
