Cambodia

The Choeung Ek Genocidal Center is a memorial located on a plot of land, some 15 kilometers from the center of Phnom Penh. This land is also known as the Killing Field, as it is the exact site were people were executed and buried in shallow graves by the Khmer Rouge.

 

It now has a mondop with the visible remains of some of the victims of this regime, as well as a historical museum. The center serves as a memorial for the victims of the cruelty and genocide that took place at this very spot, as well as throughout the rest of Cambodia.
