The Irish Centre for Human Rights is pleased to invite you to a lunchtime seminar, In Search of the Lost Executioner’, with Nic Dunlop, photographer and author. It will take place at 2pm on Wednesday, 26th October 2022 in the Seminar Room, Irish Centre for Human Rights.

Nic Dunlop’s work as a photographer and writer has appeared in numerous publications worldwide. Born in Ireland, he has worked in Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Nepal, East Timor, India and Papua New Guinea. He received an award from the Johns Hopkins University for Excellence in International Journalism for exposing Pol Pot's chief executioner, Comrade Duch. In his book, The Lost Executioner, he tells the story of how he found Duch, the rise of the Khmer Rouge and how ordinary people become killers. In Brave New Burma, he spent 20 years traveling throughout Burma photographing life under military rule. The HBO Emmy-nominated film Burma Soldier, which Nic co-directed, provided a rare glimpse into the Burmese military through the eyes of a former soldier. He has also worked on films for the BBC, ITV and Al Jazeera.
