Choeung Ek killing tree

The tree where, the tour guide told us, soldiers would murder babies and toddlers by bashing their heads against the trunk. The bracelets have been left by Buddhists as a mark of respect and to symbolise blessings or prayers, so that the deceased may be able to continue their journey in the life cycle and reincarnate.
