Phnom Penh: Cambodian Genocide Museum

When you immerse yourself in a country’s culture, you cannot hide from the atrocities that they have lived through. Thirty years ago Cambodia suffered a loss of around 3 million men, women and children. They died simply because the dictator that ruled the country did not believe they were necessary to the future of the Cambodia he wanted to build. Today we visited some of the grave sights as well as a torture and interrogation camp which was set up in an old school, sights and stories that will stay with us forever. A reminder of what humanity can do to its own kind, but also a reminder of how our race can overcome such devastation and rebuild.
