During the atrocious years the Khmer Rouge forced their terror on Cambodia, a Phnom Penh school was turned into their main prison and torture center.

Then known as S-21, from 1975 to 1979 some 20,000 prisoners went through their doors. Only 7 survived; the rest died there or were murdered nearby in The Killing Fields.

Some classrooms were used for torture, others as dormitories, or cells were built inside them to accommodate the prisoners.

S-21 is now The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
