    To Mr. Roland Neveu;

    I am the producer of a project in Norway, promoting literature for school kids. We are currently producing a one hour presentation / reading of the book OVERLEVE (Survive) by the Norwegian journalist / writer Marit Bromark. It tells the story of the 23 years old Sivun Pen who – in 1975 – was in his governmental office in Phnom Penh when the Khmer Rouge took over the city.
    The stat employed, newly married father of a six week old boy was (along with millions of others) sent to labor camp, was close to death several times, but managed to survive, escape to Indonesia and eventually to Norway (where he lives today).

    You can see a link to the book here (http://www.cappelendamm.no/main/katalog.aspx?f=10109&isbn=9788202319052) , but it’s in Norwegian, so probably you won’ t understand a lot.

    My question to you is regarding pictures.
    In the introduction to the presentation / reading of the book we want to show the students (16-18 years old) pictures of what happened in Cambodia, and in your book “The fall of Phnom Penh” we have found quite a few.
    Can you give us the right to use some of these pictures?

    I must stress out to you that this is a totally non-profit project. The salary to the writer and the costs linked to her school-visits (travels, accommodation etc) are paid for by governmental funds that of course are limited. So it would mean a great deal for us if we are able to use your photos free – limited to this project only, of course.

    Thank you and regards:
