October 1980 about a year after the Vietnamese Invasion of Cambodia and toppling of the Khmer Rouge regime, Khmer civilians taking refuge along the jungle-border poured into Thailand – starving, malaria-stricken and dying. Hundreds perhaps thousands died including many children.

   The dead were buried en masse in shallow graves by  Thai  villages
