10-year-old Loung Ung survived the Killing Fields of Cambodia. She fled the genocide that killed nearly two million people. But more than 20 of her relatives died including her parents and two siblings. We'll meet with Ung – now grown up and living in Northeast Ohio. We’ll discuss her life, her two books, "First they Killed my Father" and "Lucky Child" and how her story is causing young American students to think about their own privileges. Join us for a conversation on the extraordinary courage of the human spirit, Monday at 9am on 90.3.
