Choueng Ek is where most of the people from S-21 were sent to be disposed of. Most of the people thought that they were being taken to a “re-education camp.” Large lorries packed with people would arrive and the people escorted to holding stations. From there they were sorted and taken to the back of the complex to where the pits were. There they were killed using farm implements as bullets would have been too costly. Most were executed the same day. Walking around the grounds today there is the large skull filled monument, and directly behind a lot of what looks like bomb craters. The grounds are littered with these large excavations. What is eerie is that there are still bones and lots of clothing protruding from the sides of the holes. There are a few areas that are labeled like the section where kids were killed, a tree for torturing and hanging, and where large speakers were set to cover the sounds of the screaming.

Places that I think are ripe for it to happen again.
