The Most Horrifying Meseum

Prior to 1975, Toul Sleng was a high school ("Tuol Svay Prey" High School). When the Khmer Rouge came to power, it was converted into the S-21 (Secirity Office 21) prison and interrogation facility. Inmates were systematically tortured, sometimes over a period of months, to extract confessions, after which they ere executed at the Cheoung Ek killing fields.

S-21 was the biggest in Kampuchea Democratic. The place was surrounded with the double wall of corrugated iron, and surmounted by dense barbed wires.
