Clothes and bones from some of the victims

Clothes and bones from some of the victims

I have spoken enough about the sordid realities and the merciless cruelty at Choueng Ek, so I will hold my tongue now. Except to say that this glass case contains scores of bone fragments collected by the keepers of the site when these were washed up from the shallow graves during heavy rains. Atop the glass case are also clothes of some of the dead, which too surface from the shallow graves during rains. Below the clothes, i.e. on top of the glass case are hundreds of teeth as well. Chilling and grisly. How could man do this to a fellow man (and woman, and child and baby?). I am an agnostic as it is, bordering on atheism, my faith was further shaken after seeing all this.
