Abstract
April 17, 1975. The Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, took over Phnom Penh. The library was promptly closed; it had no place in a world where knowledge, literature, traditions, art and culture were actively sought out for destruction. As Cambodia moves beyond its traumatic history it is claiming back these things taken from it. The National Library and Archives of Cambodia can assist in this recovery and ensure continued growth into the future.
