All Day


A relatively new public holiday in Cambodia (since 2018) is the National Day of Remembrance, formerly known as the National Day of Hatred. Gazetted in the history books as a black page in the tumultuous events leading to modern-day Cambodia, it is the day when large-scale genocidal killings commenced under the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1979.

The wounds of these atrocious days may have healed, these past events still form an essential part of Cambodia’s virtue to rise above it and live in peace and harmony.
