        Youk Chhang, Chairman and Founder, the Sleuk Rith Institute (SRI) and Zaha Hadid invite you to a reception to celebrate plans for a ground-breaking new center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) dedicated to the prevention of genocide worldwide. Zaha Hadid Design Gallery, London Thursday 9th October, 2014 at 18:30 pm. The name of our Institute reflects our core objectives as well as our Cambodian heritage. Sleuk rith are dried leaves that Cambodian religious leaders and scholars have used for centuries to document history, disseminate knowledge, and preserve culture during periods of harsh rule and grave peril. The term “sleuk rith” literally means “the power of the leaves,” capturing their beauty as vehicles of knowledge and their strength in advancing social memory and human dignity. The Sleuk Rith Institute (SRI) will represent a permanent stand against mass violence in Cambodia and throughout the world. For more information and support, please visit: http://www.cambodiasri.org Note: Tree that producing Sleuk rith: Traeng (Khmer) or Corypha Umbraculifera (English) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corypha_... See also Khmer Dictionary by Choun Nath, 10 December 1967; page 469-70. UNOFFICIAL TRANSLATION Treang (ទ្រាំង): Treang is the name of a thorny palm tree with long stems, the leaves of which are dried and used by monks as writing paper called sleuk rith. The sleuk rith pages are combined to form manuscripts called sastra. In addition, the midribs of the treang leaves are used to pin the light green leaves together to make a thatched-leaf roof called phchol, which has limited durability. The leaves can be made into handbags or sacks, also called phchol. Small strips of its stems are woven to make sails, called totot. The central rib, when stripped of its leaves, is called tronung rith or chhaoeng rith (literary means: power of the bones). Mature stems are chopped up for use as canes, loom rods called dam, and various bars called poan moul, which are used to hold threads in weaving (for example treang stick, dam treang and poan moul treang). The stems of treang used as dam or poan moul are called treang kamdor khmoch and are tied to the staircase of a home to protect it from ghosts or evil spirits. In traditional lore, ghosts or evil spirits are fearful of treang. Sometimes, people who are very lazy or uneducated and do not easily wake up are considered to accompany those ghosts or evil spirits. There is a proverb which states, “Use treang to ward off evil spirits.” Treang trees self-seed in the jungles of Cambodia, predominantly in Kratie and Kampong Thom provinces. These thorny palm trees have many beneficial uses. They can be cultivated as a border to enclose a Buddhist temple, thriving in any kind of soil. Their life span is longer than that of humans. However, after blossoming and producing mature fruit, they die. The underlying assumption of these trees is that they blossom, produce fruit, and then somehow kill themselves. This process is similar to a Buddhist proverb which states that bamboo, tall reeds (Aira arundinacea) and treang trees grow, blossom, produce fruit, and then kill themselves, just as greedy, vulgar people can hasten their deaths through their own dishonorable behavior. Sastra (សាស្ត្រា) Pali and Sanskrit Sastra are manuscripts which contain codes of conduct pertaining to scientific knowledge, religion, law, educational doctrine, and other life matters which benefit from instruction. The word may be used as a suffix, for example: pravoat sastra, a manuscript that describes the history of a country; vityea sastra, a manuscript that contains different methods of research using primary resources; and selapak sastra, a manuscript for studying the arts. Sastra is also sometimes known as satra (when intended to describe a manuscript made from palm leaves), for example: satra chbap, a legal code of conduct; or satra tes, a preaching text. Sastra may be also used as prefix. For example: sastra krit: a person who composes a manuscript or code of conduct; sastra chaksa, sastra nei or sastra netra, the eyes of the manuscript (i.e., grammar); sastra ved, a wise man or scholar who knows the content of the manuscript; and sastra char, the teacher of the code of conduct or ethics.

                I really want to understand how a piece of music can give meaning to a certain fact, phenomenon, image, or activity. This interpretation can be subjective most of the time: what is making me happy can be making another person feel sad. So, I wanted to play the “Director” role and give my own interpretation to the film Waltz with Bashir by Ari Folman; using the subjectivity I talked about and the music as a “feelings creator” tool. The idea was to take certain sequences where the image interpretation was mainly influenced by music and not by the narrative of the characters. The goal of the final result is to reaffirm the original feelings that these sequences wanted to create in the viewer, or radically change them.

                    Suppressing free and open discussion on any subject is as bad as telling lies, and knowingly suppressing the truth is the biggest lie of all, because it is based, not on a mistake or a genuine error, but on a deliberate intention to deceive. Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot not be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible. Yet Höss's conviction has stood, by inference, as a testament to the cruelty of Germans in general, since he was tried at Nuremberg, in 1947, and subsequently hanged on April 16th, 1947, in Poland. With great respect for those who have tried—though harassed, punished, fined, imprisoned and otherwise abused—to tell it like it really was: Arthur R. Butz, Robert Faurisson, Paul Grubach, Gerd Honsik, David Irving, Kevin Käther, Nicholas Kollerstrom, Fred Leuchter, Horst Mahler, Ingrid Rimland, Germar Rudolf, Bradley Smith, Sylvia Stolz, Fredrick Töben, Ernst Zündel and many others.
