The Horror Inside The Killing Fields Museum Of Cambodia

The Horror Inside The Killing Fields Museum Of Cambodia

If you are looking for places that can easily creep you out - without gimmicks or hypes. The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is one of the most popular answers you can get. Dubbed as the home of S21 Victims. Why is it notorious, and remembered as one of the most cruel and hair-raising places to be at in recent memory is quite easy. Think of how each of the almost 6,000 S-21 portraits that have been recovered tells a story shock, resignation, confusion, defiance and horror. Read on and get to know more about the horror inside the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.


Phnom Penh, Cambodia - this is where we can find Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. This former high school was converted, in 1975, to Security Prison 21 by the Khmer Rouge. The prison was used as a base to torture and murder prisoners. Most of the prisoners in the Genocide museum were former soldiers and government officials from the Lon Nol regime.


However, the Khmer Rouge leaders paranoia soon caught up with them, and they began shipping people from their own ranks to the prison. Soon after that, prisoners were tortured and tricked into naming their family and associates, who were them also arrested, tortured and murdered. Imagine naming your innocent loved ones one day and see them getting arrested the next day, how creepy and unnerving is that?

It is public knowledge already that the former genocide museum is now considered to be haunted. Sources say that ghosts of the estimated 17,000 victims of Tuol Sleng continue to roam the halls, and odd happenings around the place are often attributed to them: and it is a no-brainer to know why these ghosts weren't getting any rest at all.


Most victims were forced to confess to crimes they didn’t actually commit. Harassment and humiliation each day of their lives. How can an innocent soul get its rest if you know you were prosecuted and executed by a crime you didn't commit at all? Although most victims were Cambodians, many foreigners fell victim to the death machine, including Americans, French, a New Zealander, a Briton, Australians, Arabs, Indians, Pakistanis and Vietnamese. The shocking bit is that only 12 people are thought to have been able to survive the death factory of Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.


Truth be told, this is part of a long list were humanity is no longer respected at all and it is all but sad history. And to give you a glimpse of how cruel would it be to live in this dark place full of torture and deaths,  we compiled the actual security regulations, the ten rules all prisoners had to follow. Warning though, it is truly heart-wrenching and creepy.

2. Don’t try to hide the facts by making pretexts this and that, you are strictly prohibited to contest me.
3. Don’t be a fool for you are a chap who dare to thwart the revolution.
