Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

SENG TY was born in the Kampong Speu province of Cambodia, the son of a respected physician who taught him to value life, aspire to humility, and seek the good in people. He was thirteen when he made his way alone to a refugee camp in Thailand in 1981. His story was featured in TIME Magazine’s article “Children of War”, and was read by an American family in Amherst, Massachusetts, who adopted him a year later. Now he is a citizen of the United States, a husband, a father and an educator in the Lowell, MA School System. Seng will never rid himself of his ghosts, nor will he forget the blood-chilling atrocities he has witnessed and experienced. However, he doesn’t crave revenge against those who carried out these atrocities. He desires to share his story of survival and courage only in order to give hope to others. He was one of the children of war tour in the US cities in early 1984, he shared his story through 
Phil Donahue Show, many major newspapers and CBS 60 Minutes in 1999. Seng’s wish is that The Years of Zero will give him a platform to expand his message beyond the circle of his students in Lowell, to people all over the world who are in need of a little hope.

5.0 su 5 stelle "Revenge" is education. 24 febbraio 2015
Di Susan Bassler Pickford - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Seng Ty has crafted an unforgettable memoir in his book The Years of Zero Coming of age under the Khmer Rouge. The story is simply told but the issues are painfully complex. I first learned of the genocide when I began teaching in Lowell at Keith Catholic High School. A young girl wrote her account for the school magazine. Later I was to teach English as a Second Language to younger Cambodian children at the Bartlett and Butler Middle Schools in Lowell. There I met Seng Ty, the Cambodian guidance counselor. We worked as a team until I retired and moved to Maine.
So I picked up the book knowing his story. I was not prepared for the tears that soon came in this powerful retelling of his life. The beautiful description of his beloved country before the Khmer Rouge makes the following fall into hell even more horrific. Seng had lived four lifetimes before he even graduated from U Mass Amherst. Ironically, as a baby he was left with caring peasants called Old People in the new regime. At four years of age he was returned to the warmth and love of his family as the youngest. What he absorbed during this short nurturing time had to last him the rest of his life. By the time he was six his world was in chaos. Only his intellect and his extraordinary bravery kept him alive. He suffered the loss of his family; he endured starvation; he witnessed unbelievable evil and savagery. But he survived. He had different but still very difficult challenges after his adoption by an American family. Language, culture, schooling, and food adaptations were not insignificant. Eventually he was able to reunite with his three surviving siblings.
The Years of Zero Coming of Age Under the Khmer Rouge is a classic and belongs in the curriculum of any study of genocide. Unfortunately the list of madmen is endless- Hitler,Pol Pot, Milošević and the list of peoples and regions affected is also endless – Armenia,Hutu Tutsi, Darfur. Seng Ty’s mother didn’t want her son to survive only to live in hate. Her “revenge” she told her son was education.

This book was so well written. It made me feel as if I was alongside Seng. I will never complain again about anything. This is a must read.
I am once again writing a post about Seng Ty's book, The Years of ZERO. I know Seng personally and if you ever met him you would not believe the life that he had survived through. When I read this book and see him I think WOW! He is such a nice man, polite, smart, great husband and father to his children. I think that anyone who has read this should write a post. I also think that when you read this book, you will be so thankful to live in the United States. I think many people would never take anything for granted again. Sometimes, it takes reading about a tragedy to make people wake up and be thankful for what they have. If you have a roof over your head, heat, and food in your stomach, and wake up everyday in this free country U. S. you have everything. Please recommend it to all of your friends and family. Once you read this you won't want to put it down until you read it to the end of the book.
5.0 su 5 stelle Worthwhile Read for All 28 febbraio 2015

I recently read this book for a course in Cambodian culture and ceramics. I also had the opportunity to meet the author and hear him speak about his book. I had heard about the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge but reading about a young boy's survival through it in The Years of Zero made much more of an impact on me. I was thinking about it all night and into the days following after I finished the book. Seng Ty is an amazing person, not only because he made it through such a horrific event, but also because he had the resilience to start his life a new, never giving up, and now turning these negative events into a positive force through his book. I was truly moved by the whole experience and highly recommend this book to others, particularly those who work with Cambodian families or live in communities with Cambodians, to better understand part of the history of this fascinating culture.

This was a wonderful book that told the story of a child's survival in a war-torn country filled with horror, pain, death and personal loss. In spite of the loss of most of his family, this child was able to hold onto the love and values given to him by his parents. Well worth reading. In spite of the horrors, the hope of humanity shines through.

Seng's story is one that absolutely defines resilience. It is unbelievable how much the human body can take and to see what he went through is far beyond comprehendible. There are so many instances of trauma and continuous starvation that I felt I was in these situations- it was a heart wrenching adventure. The strength and love he had for his mother and family is touching. It is amazing to read how much courage and passion to live this young boy had. He had no choice but to grow up under the reigns of the Khmer Rouge. I knew very little about the brutality of the Khmer Rouge but after reading this book I have a clear understanding. Thank you Seng for having such great resilience and sharing your story. You are truly inspirational!!
