Choeung Ek was the extermination camp where the prisoners from
S21 (now the Tuol Sleng Museum) were transported to and executed.
Also known as the Killing Fields, after the movie of the same name,
about 17,000 people were buried here in mass graves. A tall
Memorial Stupa was constructed to commemorate the dead and more
than 8,000 skulls are displayed behind the glass. At the entrance,
a handwritten sign in Khmer and English summarises the atrocities
caused by the Khmer Rouge.
