Tuong Sleng

21 December 2004

Tuong Sleng was originally a high school. However it was taken over and turned into a prison by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. The site itself looks just like the other schools in the area, but barbed wire was put around the school grounds and bars added to the windows. The classrooms were transformed to small cells where prisoners were kept and tortured.
