This is a sad gallery with my confrontation of the passed genocide in Cambodia. When I roamed in one of the hundreds empty, destroyed and abandoned houses in my living-compound in the suburbs of Bangkok, mostly confiscated and owed by a bank, I found a small shelf with a photo of a young woman with still some incense sticks around. As such items are highly respected by the Asians it was still on the spot. It has been left by previous inhabitants which could have been squatters or construction labourers working in the house or in the neighbourhood. The story behind this photo (print) fascinated me highly, and even more because the woman was pictured with a number. With the help of some Flickr-members I was able to get more insight about the woman at the print, a sad if not shocking story what I suspected already seeing circumstances and depiction! This is one of the victims of the human rights-abuse in Cambodia: a prisoner of the murderers Pol Pot and Kaing Guek Eav, or Duch in "his" prison Tuol Sleng.
The original of this print I found back in Internet in the site tuolsleng.com
