THE KILLING TREE AT CHOEUNG EK GENOCIDAL CENTER, PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA
To understand the horror of this place, few weeks old babies were beaten with the mindset that it saved bullets.
This is where prisoners were being killed by having their throats slitted and other methods of killing. Around a total number of 17,000 innocent people were killed and at the same time buried there. Bones of people come up every year during rainy season, and after they have been picked new ones will come up again.
People who visit this place still see pieces of bones, teeth and clothes there. All these are what remind people of how Khmer Rouge regime was, the level of his wickedness.
Sometime ago over 8,000 human skulls were dug up in the middle of the field which was a mass grave of the murdered innocent people.
