Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, Cambodia - is a remnant and a reminder of one of the most brutal genocides in history. It was once the home of a death camp and is believed to be haunted by the 17,000-20,000 inmates that died there (only 7-12 survived the torture and murders). When discovered in 1979, a visiting photographer and accompanying journalists had to wade through numerous, rotting corpses. Photos are displayed in the museum.


The deadline that kept prisoners back from the walls of the stockade was marked by a simple fence. Prisoners who crossed the line were shot by sentries who sat in “pigeon roosts” located every 90 feet along the wall. The man in this image was shot reaching under the fence as he tried to obtain fresher water than was available downstream. (Andersonville National Historic Site)
