Victory Day Over Genocidal is often celebrated on January 7th every year. In the past, Cambodia suffered from the most brutal government of the Democratic Kampuchea.

Millions people starved to death or died of disease, became homeless or lost their relatives. These four years from 1975 to 1979 were the most painful times to Cambodian. Fortunately, thanks to the help of Vietnamese force, bloody Khmer Rouge’ regime was brought to the end. On this day, thousands of people gather in Phnom Penh to commemorate millions Cambodians who died during Khmer Rouge’ regime. Since Victory Day Over Genocidal became public holiday, Cambodians have a day - off to spend joyful and precious time with family.
