Instead he was put to work painting portraits of Pol Pot, or 'Brother Number One,' leader of the Khmer Rouge's cruel experiment in radical Maoism. When Vietnamese troops invaded Cambodia in 1979 toppling the Khmer Rouge government, Vann Nath escaped. When a Museum of Genocide was created in the former grounds of the prison, Vann Nath returned for several years, painting scenes of prison life so that visitors could learn of the crimes of the Khmer Rouge.
