2/11/2015 – Chambok, Cambodia
Went to the Choeung Ek Genocidal Center killing fields today, where many Cambodians were killed. There was a monument there that had skulls in it that been exhumed. Even now bone fragments & clothes surface on the paths we walk on after the rain, from all the people who were killed.
Then off to S21, a prison where Cambodians went before they were sent to the killing fields. Here they were tortured, interrogated, starved.
Part of it was in my life time, 1975-1979. So recent, but yet we as humans don’t learn and continue doing the same thing.
From there off to our homestay in Chambok, up in the mountains. Had some young kids do some dances for us after our meal.
