Killing Fields of Cheoung euk
Pol Pot was one of the most evil persons in human history. During his reign at least 1.5 million Cambodians (of a population 8 million) perished all to support his vanity and ideology.
Toul Sleng a school which was used as a concentration camp is a prime exmaple of this.
Of up to 20,000 inmates which included men, women and children only 7 survived.
Not content in the ‘mere’ murder of fellow man, the barabity even exceeded the scale.
Babies were dashed to death in front of their mothers, people tortured to death in the most unimaginable way, the pictures contained in the now museum Tuol Sleng as well as a few horrific but fortunately black and white photographs detail.
The Killing fields (and note there are many scattered around Cambodia) are full or the remains of thousands of people buried in mass graves.
Take a look at the rules of Toul Sleng (they were listed in Khmer, English and French).

1. You must answer accordingly to my question. Don’t turn them away.
