De stilte van de onschuld : de strijd tegen kinderhandel in Azië by Somaly Mam( Book )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au Cambodge, des parents vendent leurs enfants dès l'âge de cinq, six ans en échange d'une centaine d'euros. Dans les bordels, les jeunes se prostituent pour cinq cents riels (quinze centimes d'euro), une somme qui leur est entièrement confisquée par le proxénète ou la mama-san, la mère maquerelle. Somaly Mam, aujourd'hui âgée de trente-quatre ans, retrace dans ce livre son enfance d'esclave battue, violée. Elle témoigne sur la torture dans les bordels, et raconte avec émotion la destinée tragique de ces enfants -comme Thomdi, vendue à l'âge de neuf ans, décédée, ou Sokhone, vendue à huit ans, morte du sida et de la tuberculose à quinze. Pour lutter contre ce trafic, Somaly Mam, avec son mari Pierre Legros, a créé en 1997 au Cambodge l'association Afesip (Agir pour les femmes en situation précaire), une ONG à vocation internationale qui s'est développée depuis lors en Thaïlande, au Vietnam et au Laos, et qui a pour objectifs le sauvetage et la réinsertion sociale des personnes réduites en esclavage sexuel. Malgré les menaces et les représailles dont elle est la cible, elle a pu venir en aide à des milliers de fillettes et adolescentes contraintes à la prostitution
The road of lost innocence by Somaly Mam( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in a Cambodian village, Somaly Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather at age twelve. For the next decade she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade of Southeast Asia. She suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking--rape, torture, deprivation--until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker. Emboldened by her newfound freedom, education, and security, Somaly blossomed but remained haunted by the girls in the brothels she left behind. This book tells the story of her awakening as an activist and her harrowing and brave fight against the powerful and corrupt forces that steal the lives of these girls. She has built shelters, started schools, and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.--From publisher description

Tolv år gammel ble Somaly Mam solgt som prostituert av sin bestefar. Det neste tiåret ble hun kastet fram og tilbake mellom de mange horehusene som utgjør den voksende sex-industrien i Sørøst-Asia. I begynnelsen av 20-årene klarte hun å rømme, men kunne aldri glemme jentene hun var sammen med. Somaly Mam er i dag en uredd frontfigur i arbeidet mot menneskehandelen, og denne boka er en del av kampen for å redde tusener av småjenter som hvert år blir solgt som prostituerte
