Toul Sleng genocide museum is an important museum in Cambodian contemporary history. Before 1975, Toul Sleng was the Secondary School of Toul Sleng in Phnom Penh capital. But after Pol Pot came to power, it was converted into the S-21 prison and interrogation facility. Inmates were systematically tortured, sometimes over a period of months, to extract confessions, after which they were executed at the killing fields of Choeung Ek. S-21 processed over 17,000 people, seven of whom survived. The building now serves as a museum, a memorial and a testament to the madness of the Khmer Rouge regime. Much has been left in the state it was when the Khmer Rouge abandoned it in January 1979. The prison kept extensive records, leaving thousands of photos of their victims, many of which are on display. Paintings of torture at the prison by Vann Nath, a survivor of Toul Sleng, are also on display. The museum’s famous and controversial “Skull Map” is no longer on display.

In the present time, the museum remains a lot of evidences of Khmer Rouge’s barbarism. When tourists see those evidences, they will say “It’s hard to believe!” but it had exactly happen for what Khmer Rouge had done on those pity victim. This genocide museum had a close relationship with Choeung Ek genocide museum at the south of Phnom Penh.
