About The Wisdom Seeker:

The infamous killing fields of Cambodia claimed the lives of nearly two million people.

As a small child, Pisey Leng bore witness to brutal acts of violence and assaults on human dignity.

She lost her father, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. 

But in the face of unspeakable horror Pisey’s courage and determination kept her alive.

Pisey Leng’s harrowing escape in 1979 from Cambodia and the clutches of the Khmer Rouge began a nine-year journey to freedom.

“The Wisdom Seeker: Finding the Seed of Advantage in the Khmer Rouge”, is a stark account of her incredible adventure.
