Phnom Penh Genocide Museum

A high school in 1975 was turned into a prison for anyone who opposed the Khmer Rouge (KR.) They could put you in the prison for any reason. They tortured people until they signed confessions (even if they weren’t guilty of anything) then they were killed. The barb wire thwarted any attempts at suicide. The bed and pillow are remnants of the last days of the prison. When it was liberated, there were only seven survivors. Of them, there was a sculptor, a painter & a photographer kept alive to document the genocide.
