Cambodia Snapshots: Prisoners Clothes At Tuol Sleng Museum

Cambodia Snapshots / Saturday, January 7th, 2012

I haven’t really posted much about Cambodia’s dark painful past. But that’s not to say its not there. Anybody who has been here should know what this country has been through. The reason though I haven’t posted much about it is that, I find it too dark and depresses me. My Khmer husband also is not very keen on rehashing what has happened but instead just remember it in solitude.

I’ve been to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum a few of times to show friends around but only on one occasion did I venture inside and actually have a look at the detailed horrors inside. If you want to have a glimpse at how the Khmers suffered during Khmer Rouge this museum is a must visit. I remember I left the place feeling out of sorts and my heart was pounding and a million questions running through my mind foremost would be, Why people would be as cruel to other people? I didn’t take that much photos inside but this one above sticks to me for some reason. It’s sad, gut-wrenching.

I’m posting it today for Cambodia Snapshots coz January 7, Cambodians are celebrating their Victory Day to commemorate the end of Khmer Rouge.
