Photographer's Note

This is one of the torture room in the infamous Khmer Rouge's S21 security prison. Its just one of Pol Pot's many security prison in the country, but S21 is the biggest one. The building complex was a school before Pol Pot took over and turned it into a security prison.
In this room prisoners are tortured to death in the bed. On the rightside of the wall there is a picture of the tortured corpse died in this room. The photo probably taken by the Khmer Rouge, as they are taking many photographs of their victims for archival purpose.
My local guide told me that he doesnt know any Cambodian who didn't lost any relative during Pol Pot regime. Many young kids at that time doesnt even know what happened to their parents. All they know was their parent never went back home.
