Cambodia: Then and Now (Scholarship Entry)

My Scholarship entry - Cambodia: Then and Now

-The Innocent-
This image was taken at the Choeung Ek Killing Field site. An orchard and Chinese graveyard before the Khmer Rouge regime in the `70s turned it into a killing field, it houses a Buddhist stupa which displays more than 5,000 human skulls that have been unearthed. An estimated 17,000 people were brutally executed at the Choeung Ek killing field site alone, including women, children and even babies. As you walk through the fields you can still see human bones coming up through the dirt.
