en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambodia_under_Pol­_Pot_(1975-1979)
The worst humanity can muster, a sad epic in the history of man, and not well known in the rest of the world. Pol Pot, leader of the Khmer Rouge from 1975 to 1979, claimed to have eliminated 800,000 people, while estimates run as high as 3 million killed not only by death camps and squads, but by the following chaos and starvation. 25 to 30% of the entire country's population at the time.
This video features snapshots from Tuol Sleng S-21 prison/extermination camp, where 20000 people went through and there are 7 known survivors. There are paintings done by one of the survivors that show the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. Photos at the Killing Fields were taken in heavy rain, which washed away the dirt and exposed more bones that were strewn everywhere, even along the PATH we were WALKING ON.
I witnessed areas of Cambodia where an entire generation is simply missing. Children are working because there are simply not enough adults to run businesses and do labor.
It is a heartbreaking story that must be remembered in order to prevent it from happening again.
Put an end to genocide~
