Choeung Ek was the main place of performance and mass grave of prisoners of Democratic Kampuchea, the regime of the Khmer Rouge, when it presided over the destiny of Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. It is located 17 km southwest of Phnom Penh and covers two hectares. Before its transformation into camp, Choeung Ek was a Chinese cemetery. When the Khmer Rouge took power, they created the largest center for security of the country which included the prison Tuol Sleng, in downtown Phnom Penh, for the torture and interrogation of prisoners and the camp of execution Choeung Ek, for prisoners of Tuol Sleng and other centers in the area (Panh, 2004). Of the 129 mass graves, about 80 have been excavated. Near one of these pits is also the magic tree: the Khmer Rouge had placed there a loudspeaker that broadcast songs to cover the screams of the victims, because everything had to happen unbeknownst to the rest of the population. The capital site (commonly called killing fields by tourists) is accessible to tourists via tuk-tuk or taxi. The entrance fee for foreigners is between $2 and $ 5. The site is managed by a private Japanese who paid $ 15 000 to the city of Phnom Penh in 2005 (Panh, 2004). It includes an exhibition summarizing the operation of the regime of Democratic Kampuchea and a screening room showing a film. Tourists can wander through the site, but are asked not to cross the pits (whose boundaries are not clear) and to stay calm (Michael, 2003).
