The Killing Tree of Choeng Ek

Located 15km southeast of Phnom Penh, the Choeung Ek Genocidal Centre was once a peaceful orchard and Chinese graveyard. Today it’s one of Cambodia’s best-known killing fields.

Between 1975 and 1979 Choeung Ek saw an estimated 20,000 prisoners murdered and dumped in approximately 129 mass graves. 
Due to its relative proximity, many of the victims were prisoners of the infamous S-21 detention center, now the Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocide Crimes, where victims were often imprisoned and tortured for months beforehand.

Meanwhile, many members of the Khmer Rouge were also killed here. Murdered and dumped in mass graves just like everybody else.

Infants were executed by being bashed against the tree in order to save bullets.

The graphic on the tee serves as a memorial to all of the victims.
