Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Tuol Svay Prey High School or is it . . . .
Look closer and you might see barbed wire . .
The above picture was taken in side the ‘school’ grounds.
Cells for the prisoners.
How small is each cell
From an exercise pole to a pole of torture.
There are many photographs of those who were killed on display, but I didn’t think it was right to post them on a blog, particularly after read the regulations below.
The happiest moment of our visit came about as we were leaving. Near the exit gate I met one of the survivors of this horrible place.
Bou Meng had written about his time as a prisoner.
I felt honoured that he was happy to sign his book for me.
This ‘school’ is located in the capital city, it is not hidden away.
It was only a short drive and we were happy to see how life had changed for the locals.
