Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
Welcome to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, the converted Cambodian school where at least 15,000 dissidents were tortured and killed under the Khmer Rouge. And while museums of other atrocities like Auschwitz delicately display collections of victims' suitcases and eyeglasses, Tuol Sleng went right for the skulls. Like, the actual skulls of those killed. Either haphazardly displaying them in glass cases ...
We'd give anything for an X-Files episode where Mulder says, "That case is so skully."
Or as you saw above, glued onto a map like the world's most terrible macaroni art.
And speaking of art, that's exactly what this museum is chock-full of.
One of the very, very few survivors of the torture school painted pictures to show us how bad it was. So why not display those paintings right alongside the actual torture devices depicted in them?
"And if you step into this room, we can show you the actual torture, demonstrated on live volunteers."
