Dear Kobe is a letter from a seventy-something former Cambodian army spy and Khmer Rouge survivor to his little boy, the child of his old age. In the letter, he tells a story that seven-year-old Kobe is still too young to comprehend. It is a story drenched in the blood of some two million victims of Pol Pot and his murderous Khmer Rouge. It is a story of survival and escape from the unimaginable horrors of the 1975–1979 genocide.
One day, when Kobe is grown up, his daddy probably won't be here anymore. But Kobe will want to know his family history. This is that story.
