Overview

The Eichmann in Jerusalem for the Khmer Rouge, The Master of Confessions is a harrowing yet humane account of the trial of Duch, a Khmer Rouge operative and the director of the regime's most brutal prison. A renowned war-crime journalist, Cruvellier captures the intense drama of the trial as it unfolds and delves into the Khmer Rouge's rule of terror, offering a psychologically penetrating and devastating look at the victims, the torturers, and the regime itself. By offering us a unique view into the mind of a mass murderer, The Master of Confessions sheds light on one of the most storied genocides of our time.
