- When Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge, this former high school was converted into the detention and interrogation center known as S-21. Political enemies suspected of treason were brought here and tortured for confessions. Very few detainees survived S-21, but the brutal history of Toul Sleng was documented by the Khmer Rouge themselves in the postmortem photos of many of the victims. The tragedy of S-21 is almost too much to bear, whether you choose to walk through the buildings alone or with one of the excellent guides registered with the museum.
