I am inviting Tuol Sleng Genocides to the Museum in Phnom Penh.  The gallery will be untypical, sad and please to consider whether you want her to watch. The museum is situated on the area of the former secondary school, turned into the managed imprisonment through of Companion of the Ghost. on zdj.- regulations of the prison. It stayed in the imprisonment c 17 tys. of people before murder victims stayed on killing fields and buried in mass graves. on zdj.- one of rooms of tortures. In April of 1975 army Red the Khmerów is occupying Phnom Penh, he is knocking the current regime down, he is assuming the power, he is changing the name of the country on Democratic Campuchea, and with the real leader of the move Pol is staying Sweat. Politics, called the Zero Year carried out through Red the Khmerów is leading to closing schools, hospitals, factories, the liquidation of money and banks, of liquidation of the private property, of banning of the religion.  The urban population is staying by force thrown away to country areas to tzw of an collective arable farms, being labour camps indeed compulsory. This policy is leading the huge number of people to the end of its life, both as a result of starving, as well as working and the execution.
Not only supporters of the previous regime are being murdered but mainly intellectuals, specialists of different fields.  They were killing even behind the very fact of having glasses or the market of delicate hands... on zdj. held prisoner and murdered. It isn't obvious exactly what percentage of inhabitants was butchered by countrymen. 10, 20, 25 %??? Average from conducted different estimates it is 1.5 m of citizens dead and murdered out of 7 m of this country before 1975. It was going down with Toul Sleng prisoners in the entire country.  They have often been members Red Khmerów and with soldiers accused of the betrayal of the party and the revolution. There were communist politicians of high rank amongst them. on zdj. - political enemy? With soldiers Pota Pol there were teenaged boys, get back earlier from parents, indoctrinated politically, taught for setting enduring both murdering and uzbrojeni... like for you on zdj. After reaching to prison, prisoners were photographed and they gave their detailed biographies, having begun since childhood, and finishing on the arrest.  Next they were forced to strip down to their underwear and their property was being confiscated. Then prisoners were taken to the cells. Taken away from you to shorter purpose were chained to the wall or the concrete floor. They were kept to greater group purposes chained to long iron bars. Cuffs were attached to bars by turns; prisoners were in the opposite directions with heads. They slept on the floor without mats, mosquito nets or sheets. Conversations were forbidden.
The day in prison began about 4: 30 morning when prisoners undressed for the inspection.  Guards checked whether cuffs hadn't loosened and whether prisoners didn't hide objects who could serve for committing suicide. For years a few prisoners managed to commit them, so guards checked cells and cuffs very precisely. Prisoners obtained little portions of rice pap and thin soup from leaves twice a day. Tax return of water without the question about the permission threatened with the heavy assault and battery. Prisoners were washed every four days. The prison had very stiff regulations, and corporal punishments meted out were severe for everyone who didn't obey them.  Almost every activity had to be approved by the guard. Prisoners have sometimes been forced to eat human sewage and to drink urine. Insanitary conditions of living in prison caused skin diseases, lice. The medical service of the prison was unqualified and she limited herself for keeping prisoners crippled during interviews alive. When prisoners were taken their faces were covered. Guards or prisoners could not talk to themselves. From estimated 17 000 kept people in Tuol Sleng known he is only they survived twelve persons whom he is eating.  Four of them still live. Three men were kept at living since they had abilities recognised reputable by torturers. Vann Nath was an artist and he was allotted for painting of images Pota Pol. A lot of from his images showing events, of whom he witnessed in Tuol Sleng, he is today on an exhibition.  Also the ones on zdj. The system of tortures in Tuol Sleng was invented so that prisoners admitted to all crimes, against whom the accuseds stayed.  Prisoners were beaten, treated to electric shocks, burnt with metal heated up and hung up. Some were cut with the knife or overburdened with the plastic bag. Other methods of extorting testimony are tearing nails out and pouring alcohol on rany... Women sometimes were raped by examining magistrates though the sexual abuse was at variance with the policy of Democratic Campuchea.  Many prisoners died during tortures, although it wasn't recommended by the regime, since Red needed Khmerzy of their testimony.
For the first year Toul Seng action of the delay was grzebane in surroundings of the prison.  However at the end 1979 ran short of the place, so prisoners and their families were taken to the centre of the Choeung execution Ek fifteen kilometres from Phnom Penh. There they were killed with bars of iron, hoes, machetes and other makeshift tools. After the execution soldiers who brought convicts buried delays into mass holding graves from 6 to 100 bodies. Choeung Ek, being in the ancient orchard and the Chinese graveyard, 17 km to the south of Phnom Penh the most known from killing fields, on whom regime Red the Khmerów murdered about 17,000 people in Today on the spot Choeung the Ek is standing monument, Buddhist stupa.  Stupa has walls fitted with glass and she is filled up above 5,000 human skulls laid on fifteen floors of shelves and with bones and clothes get from mass graves. Some rock bottoms of shelves during the day are opened this way, that it is possible directly to see skulls. Many of them is broken up and roztrzaskanych... Apart from stupy on the Choeung area Ek hollows are all over graves, from whom bodies and display cases were being exhumed with bones.  There are 129 mass graves essentially there but so far they examined only 86. From exhumation it is possible to examine photographs in the Tuol Sleng museum. Against it is this tree dzieci... heads were being broken
To today visitors of Pol of the Death are treading on pomordowanych... bones 7 January 1979 Vietnamese armies cooperating with insurrectionary branches occupied Phnom Penh knocking the communist regime down. Pol in given interviews didn't recognize Sweat of one's responsibility for these crimes.  He talked about times of his governments: we were like trainee children to walk, I fought not for in order to murder people, we ran our fight in order to prevent wietnamizacji Cambodia, my conscience is clean. In April 1998 died of year in the house arrest.

Ku przestrodze wszyscy powinni obejrzeć tę galerie. A dla informacji, to Pol Pot studiował w Europie, dokładnie w Paryżu i jak widać niczego dobrego się nie nauczył.

Dziękuję za tą galerię!
Jest taka książka "Kambodżańska odyseja" Haing Ngora. Na jej motywach został nakręcony film "Pola śmierci", jednak nie oddaje on bezmiaru tragedji ludności Kambodży w takim stopniu jak książka Ngora, która jest wstrząsajacym pamiętnikiem.
