Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
Imagine the screams of pain that must have reverberated through the hallways of the Security Prison 21(S-21) when you visit Phnom Penh's Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. The site of a former high school, the five building complex was enclosed in electrified barbed wire, the classrooms converted into tiny prisons and torture chambers, and all the windows were covered with iron bars and barbed wire to prevent escapes. From 1975-1979 as many as 20,000 people were held by the Khmer Rouge here, with most being tortured mercilessly and systematically exterminated. Out of the thousands imprisoned at Tuol Sleng, there were only seven known survivors! It's a heartbreaking statistic to remember when you walk through the museum today and see the preserved torture devices, the photos of victims on the walls, and the cabinets filled with human skulls.
