Tuol Sleng Museum in Phnom Penh. A picture of someone's mother killed almost 30 years ago in S-21 prison...

Tuol Sleng Museum in Phnom Penh - a former high school, it was known as the S-21 (“Security Office 21”) during the Khmer Rouge regime between 1975 and 1979.
Thousands of pictures of Khmer Rouge victims hang on the museum walls: men, women and children who were duly photographed, then tortured and killed. S-21 was known simply as "konlaenh choul min dael chenh" - "the place where people go in but never come out." Nearly 20,000 people are known to have entered Tuol Sleng; of these only six are known to have survived.
