Choeung Ek Museum

You’ll find grim reminders of that last in the S-21 Prison, now remade as the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh. With mass graves, and memorial stupas holding myriad human skulls and long bones occupying Choeung Ek today, this is one piece of history that you certainly must be part of, all so you can gain inspiration to fight for a world filled with peace.
