History is important, to learn from the past and not repeat it. Yet history can be difficult, even painful to uncover, and challenging to a ‘safe’, ‘happy’ classroom environment. This event is organised by the Comparative Education Research Centre, HKU and the Cambodian Association of Hong Kong. ‘First They Killed My Father’ is a 2017 thriller directed by Angelina Jolie based on the genocide of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. After the film, experts share views on learning from history, in Cambodia and worldwide.
