Remembering photographer Dith Pran

Photojournalist and humanitarian Dith Pran, survivor of and witness to Cambodia’s “Killing Fields” period, passed away last week.  The NY Times, for which Mr. Dith reported with his friend and colleague Sid Schanberg, features a remembrance of his life, along with a selection of his photos.  Perhaps most interesting, though, is the “Last Word” video feature in which Dith speaks about his life and the need to remain vigilant lest the horrors he witnessed be repeated.  I found the feature to be six minutes very well spent.
