Khmer Oral History Project: Interview with Yoeuth Yan
BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Yoeuth Yan was a student in 1975 when the Khmer Rouge regime began. He was sent out of Battambang City and was not allowed to join his family in Posat Province. He fell ill with malaria while working on the youth mobile team and, after recovering, was able to locate his mother and siblings. He then learned that his father had been taken by the Khmer Rouge and killed. Yan became sick with malaria again, but was still made to work in various camps throughout the regime including a "reeducation" camp. After the Vietnamese soldiers arrived in 1979, he was again able to find his family and then left for Thailand. He was able to support himself there despite a lack of services by selling Thai goods to Cambodians, crossing between the countries. He met a sponsor through the American Refugee Committee and moved to Minnesota.
