Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum - When the Vietnam army invaded the Phnom Penh's S-21 secret prison in 1979, the Khmer Rouge prison leadership fled leaving behind a bevy of evidence of their atrocities against Cambodian citizens. During their reign of terror, Khmer Rouge security forces exterminated almost all of Cambodia’s leadership class and killed nearly two million people, a quarter of its population. The Tuol Sleng Museum tells the story of that genocide and S-21, the largest of several work camps where citizens were imprisoned and murdered.


Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum Photo Gallery - A collection of photos of Phnom Penh's S-21 (Security Office 21) labor camp. The museum, located on the grounds of the former Tuol Svay Prey high school, contains exhibits that show the inhuman and sordid conditions suffered by the more than 30,000 Cambodian citizens who were imprisoned, interrogated, starved or worked to death, or executed at the prison.

Killing Fields of Cheung Ek Photo Gallery - 17,000 Cambodian men, women and children were executed and buried in mass graves. After being detained, interrogated and tortured at the nearby S-21 prison, 20 to 30 frightened, blindfolded civilians were transported by truck to this former apple orchard. When they arrived, they were led to ditches and pits where they were executed by clubbing, stabbing, or other means. Heavy rains and flooding continue to wash up teeth, bone fragments and rags of clothing.
