Two very different monuments from Cambodia – one ancient and glorious the other modern and horrific. Both a testament to the Cambodian past which MUST NOT be forgotten.

DSCF3707The Mausoleum at Cheoung Ek – Killing Fields where the mass graves of almost 9000 innocent Cambodians have been found. These part of 3/4 million people murdered between 1975 and 1979 by the Khmer Rouge in genocide.
