Brother and sister reunited
This unattributed photograph shows a brother and a sister being reunited after three years of separation. The siblings are in the centre of the image, he wearing a uniform, and she wearing what looks like festive clothing. They hold hands. The people around them, a mix of soldiers and civilians, smile broadly. The soldiers are from the Kampuchea United Front for National Salvation (KUFNS, also known as FUNSK) [Front or Renakse]. This image was featured in the publication (French and English versions) The People’s Republic of Kampuchea (1979).
This photograph is part of the collection held by the Agence Khmère de Presse (AKP) and Cambodia’s Ministry of Information. This collection, which documents the early years of the People’s Republic of Kampuchea as photographed by the Vietnamese and a small team of Cambodian photographers, has not yet been classified or indexed.
