As a part of our city tour we were taken to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Within the grounds of an old high school, we were lead around by a Cambodian man who was 15 during the time of the Khmer Rouge who explained to us the torture methods of those within the communist party of Kampuchea lead by Pol Pot. Between 1975-1979 Pol Pot and his army tortured and killed 2,000,000 of the current 7 million population. Walking around was ghostly eerie, painfully heart-breaking and their methods was inhumanly horrific.
