Memorial inaugurated at former S-21 prison

On March 26, 2015, a German-funded monument was unveiled at Duch’s former prison in Phnom Penh that was known during the Khmer Rouge era as S-21.

Today S-21, where thousands were tortured prior to their execution, is known as the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, and it attracts hundreds of visitors each day.
