ONI VITANDHAM”S MEMOIR, On the Wings of a White Horse; A Cambodian Princess’s Story of Surviving the Khmer Rouge Genocide, is at once heart-breaking and heartwarming. Never knowing her parents, she was raised by godparents in a secluded cave in the Kompong Speu province of Cambodia. On April 17, 1975, the Khmer Rouge invaded Cambodia, begin-ning what would become an genocidal massacre of the Khmer people and their culture. That same day, Oni’s godmother left the safety of the cave to gather food. She never returned...
So begins the amazing story of Oni Vitandham, and this evening I am honored to welcome her to our show to share with you her personal journey, and her story of survival in two very different worlds.
It's good to talk.
