Much likerepparttar Nazi concentration camps,repparttar 141257 Khmer Rouge documented ever prisoner and atrocity. Upon arrival, each prisonerís picture was taken and a detailed biography was documented. Prisoners were then confined to cells approximatelyrepparttar 141258 size of a closet by chaining them to iron posts. Daily torture was undertaken through beatings, electric shock and other atrocities. Atrepparttar 141259 end of their imprisonment, prisoners were marched about two miles torepparttar 141260 killing fields. To save bullets, they were beaten to death.

The atrocious numbers for Tuol Sleng:

From 10,500 to 14,500 adult prisoners.

Another 2,000 children prisoners.

7 survived. Yes, just 7.

Only 2 Khmer have ever been prosecuted forrepparttar 141261 atrocity.

Today, Tuol Sleng is a genocide museum. The walls are full of pictures ofrepparttar 141262 prisoners. Men and women. Boys and girls as young as 5-years old. There are still bloodstains onrepparttar 141263 floors ofrepparttar 141264 interrogation rooms.

Why visit or write an article about Tuol Sleng? Traveling is about discovery, even ifrepparttar 141265 subject is something horrible. Failing to recognizerepparttar 141266 dark side of humanity dooms us to repeat those failings. The Nazi concentration camps existed inrepparttar 141267 40s, Tuol Sleng inrepparttar 141268 70s, and today similar atrocities are occurring in North Vietnam and Darfur. Will we ever learn?
