Tuol Sleng was a high school that had been converted into a prison during the Khmer Rouge's occupation of Phnom Penh when the majority of the city's population had been exiled to the countryside.

Modern estimates place the number of total prisoners at around 17,000 (whose crimes included being educated abroad or getting a Master's degree) and whose inmates extended from the elderly to infants. Some of the most haunting memorials come in the form of the prisoner mug shots (the Khmer Rouge, like many dictatorial military parties, kept meticulous records of their victims), which are now starkly arranged in large windows around the site.
