Vaddey Ratner's "In the Shadow of the Banyan" explores the Cambodian people’s resilience and perseverance despite forced exodus into labor camps, torture and starvation brought on by the rise of the Khmer Rouge, which killed at least 1.7 million people in the mid 1970s. Ratner, who lived through Cambodia’s political uprising as a young girl, visits the University to share her story of enduring forced labor, starvation and near execution under the Khmer Rouge and discuss why she chose to write a fictionalized account of these events rather than a memoir.
