Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum

by Samuel on April 22, 2013

Many times you travel to see attractions to feel a sense of awe and inspiration but when you visit Tuol Sleng Genocidal Museum (also known as former Security Prison 21) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia it’s a much more somber experience where you can’t help but reflect upon your own life and feel a sense of gratitude. This converted high school was designated as S-21 (Security Center 21) where many prisoners were interrogated, tortured and ultimately sentenced to death. The horrific conditions inflicted upon the victims is incomprehensible. Visiting this museum is a reminder at how brutal humankind can be at times; however, it’s important to remember these events to remind future generations and hopefully prevent it from ever happening again.
