  • Killing Fields - Cambodia

The killing fields document death. From 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge soldiers killed 1.7 million Cambodians, or roughly 20 percent of the population.

A soccer-field-sized area surrounded by farmland, the killing fields contain mass graves, slightly sunken, for perhaps 20,000 Cambodians, many of whom were tortured before being killed. The bordering trees held nooses for hangings.

Address: Just outside Phnom Penh

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
