At least 14,000 people were imprisoned in Tuol Slen (Tool Sleng) prison, also called the S-21, which was one of the most prominent of many interrogation houses throughout Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge’s four-year reign of terror. Virtually, every one of them was killed and, it turns out, photographed by a teenage Khmer photographer.

Guests:
• Chris Riley, co-director of the Photo Archve Group and co-editor of The Killing Fields, a book that features the photos of 100 of the 6000 found negatives of the Cambodian victims.
• Doug Niven, co-director of the Photo Archive Group, now in Thailand getting oral histories from people who worked in the prison. He speaks from Bangkok.
