A blackboard bears testimony to the crimes

A blackboard bears testimony to all the torture and death imposed upon the unfortunate victims at S-21. The demented Khmer Rouge lunatics had banned education and thought it fit to use a sacred institution like a school to unleash their reign of terror. The bigger irony is that the demented lunatic in charge of this facility, the guardian of death Duch, went on to become a pastor and later Director of Education in a remote region in Cambodia before he was caught. Surprisingly, he then put out an appeal to be freed as 'he had been co-operating fully' etc. He is now languishing in the slammer, where his 30 year sentence was mercifully converted to life imprisonment in 2012.
