Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocidal Crime

Gayatri Manu
Among one of the 150 interrogation cells/ prisons set up in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge, this high-school turned museum documents the horrors of the Cambodian Genocide. Pictures of terrified prisoners, letters written in panic and instruments of torture dot the dull grey walls of the Tuo Sleng Museum. While leaving the compound you will come across the rules for the prisoners which includes ‘While getting lashes or electrification you must not cry at all.’ 2 of the 11 survivors of Tuo Sleng sell books in the compound and smile for photographs with immense sorrow in their eyes.
