Dr. Richard Mollica
Project Leader and Interviewer
Richard Mollica led the project with the assistance of Svang Tor. He interviewed many of the women and used what he had heard and learned from the women to write a book. Healing Invisible Wounds, is a book that shows the tremendous capacity at which traumatized refugees can heal themselves with the help of physiologists.
Svang Tor (Lee)
Project Interviewer and Participant
Svang Tor played a vital role on the Cambodian Oral Story project as she was able to not only translate what the women were saying, but also participated in the project. She shared her story of what it was like to live under the Khmer Rouge. She assisted Dr. Mollica in many projects pertaining to Cambodian as she helped author a comic about traumatized Cambodians.
Marcus Halevi photographed many of the atrocities happening in Cambodia during Pol Pot's regime. He created a gallery of pictures that display the brutal living conditions many Cambodians had to deal with during the late 1970's.
Ruth Hill helped the original team by providing advice and tips for conducting the interviews. She remains to be an important member of the team because without her, the project would have stalled and she continues to give vital advice.
