A school turned into a secret torturous prison, a peaceful orchard turned into a killing field with tens of thousands buried in mass graves.. Visiting these sites leaves you with a heavy heart. Over two million people, a quarter of the Cambodian population at the time, lost their lives during the brutal Khmer Rouge reign. The Khmer Rouge devastated this beautiful part of the world only 40 years ago. A humbling experience and a truly somber reminder of how lucky we are to grow up and live somewhere safe.
