What people are saying:

The prison museum is located south of Phnom Penh, a former high school school used as a concentration camp for prisoners in the Bobo era. It had imprisoned more than 17,000 intellectuals, civilians, women and children, and tortured to death every day, until the Hengshan Forest regime invaded Phnom Penh in 1979, leaving only 14 bodies and seven survivors in the camp. The displays of torture and introductions are gruesome. Documentary films are also shown every day at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Additional Information

Introduction

When Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge, this former high school was converted into the detention and interrogation center known as S-21. Political enemies suspected of treason were brought here and tortured for confessions. Very few detainees survived S-21, but the brutal history of Toul Sleng was documented by the Khmer Rouge themselves in the postmortem photos of many of the victims. The tragedy of S-21 is almost too much to bear, whether you choose to walk through the buildings alone or with one of the excellent guides registered with the museum.
