At the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek you can see the horrific reminder of the atrocities the Khmer Rouge committed. About 17,000 people were killed there and some 8000 skulls are visible behind the glass panel of the Memorial Stupa, all arranged by sex and age. The monument was erected in 1988. Before they were murdered, the victims were detained at the S-21 prison, which was housed in the Tuol Svay Prey High School. The Tuol Sleng Museum is a testament to the crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge. It includes a short description of each victim's torture and death.

The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek are 15 km southwest of Phnom Penh. Organized tours are available in the capital.
