The Killing Fields

A black period in Cambodian history, but one that shouldn't be forgotten.

Between 1975 and 1978 the Pol Pot led Khmer Rouge were responsible for the deaths of up to 3 million citizens, including children. 150 prison camps were established across the country of which Tuol Sleng S21 is the most well known. Today it houses the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum along with the memorial park at Choeung Ek where thousands of S21 prisoners were systematically killed. Less than a handful of people survived.

Warning: This story contains some confronting and graphic information of torture and genocide.
