I’ve been living in Cambodia for more than a decade now but it is only recently that I visited the Choeung Ek Killing Fields. Signs like you see below and the eerie atmosphere there leaves you a gut-wrenching feeling when you visit. It is not for the faint-hearted because of the horrific events that took place there but, at the same time, it is also an important reminder of man’s cruelty to one another.

Sign at Choeung Ek Killing Fields

This tree is a silent witness to the brutality and violence that happened here more than three decades ago.

Let us not forget that atrocities such as the Khmer Rouge era and the Holocaust happened.
