Most of us travelers time and again have rocked a twine bracelet. But after my visit to the Killing Fields near Phen Phnom, Cambodia, each color, rope and loop took a new meaning.
Hanging over the posts at each of the mass graves at the Killing Field of Choeung Ek, these bracelets – a rainbow of color in a solemn place – are just a little piece of the story that visitor leave with them.
To learn more about the horrific genocide by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia that took nearly 2.5 million lives, visit Choeung Ek and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum at the Security Prison S-21.
