Tuol Sleng Prison: “Execution Portraits”

 

Photographs taken shortly before the execution of prisoners at S-21, also known as Tuol Sleng Prison, during the reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. This was Pol Pot’s secret prison, used during his genocidal rule (1975-79). Between 1-2 million Cambodians – and many thousands of foreigners – were starved to death, tortured, or killed, during this reign of terror.
