Welcome to Tuol Sleng Genocide Musuem, where during it’s prison days it was simply called S-21.  Located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, it was used during the Khmer Rouge reign to house Cambodian citizens that the Khmer Rouge considered criminals.  Criminals like teachers and monks.  Anyone with an education was considered disposable and put here at the prison where they were tortured and killed.  Out of about 17,000 prisoners, only 12 are known to have survived their stay.
