UNESCO Memory of the World Register marker at Tuol Sleng

UNESCO marker in front of the graves of the 14 victims found at Tuol Sleng (Strychnine Hill) when the Vietnamese army liberated Phnom Penh from the Khmer Rouge in 1979. The marker announces the inscription of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum Archives on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register on July 31, 2009. They contain over 5,000 photographs of prisoners, their confessions, and biographical records, as well as files on Khmer Rouge prison guards and security officials. (Brian K.
