In part one of the interview, Son Soubert shares his memory and analyses on Cambodia’s historical facts based on his in-depth knowledge and hand-on experiences about time prior to the control of Khmer Rouge in 1975. The interview starts from the struggle for independence from France in late 1940s, to effort in building the country during the King Norodom Sihanouk’s Sangkum Reastr Niyum in the 50s and 60s, and Cambodia’s crisis in the first half of the 1970s that leaded to the control of power by Khmer Rouge in April 1975. Some historical events have never been written in any history book, and they are based on his engagement, and direct involvements of his father, Son San who was a former minister and former Prime Minister of Cambodia, in the country’s social and political arena.
