" The Stuff of Nightmares " Tuol Sleng Museum Tip by DrewV

Tuol Sleng Museum, Phnom Penh: 90 reviews and 183 photos

  A Grisly Map of Skulls
by DrewV

The most ominous exhibits in Tuol Sleng are the row upon row of photographs of the victims interned here. The Khmer Rouge, fanatical about record keeping, took photos of every person they killed.

Dispersed among the photos are graphic paintings depicting different torture and execution methods. The crowning display is a wall-high map of Cambodia made of the skulls of the dead and framed by disturbing statistics: 3 million dead or missing.
