Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum

The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is a museum in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia. The site is a former high school which was used as the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21) by the Khmer Rouge regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979. Tuol Sleng in Khmer means “Hill of the Poisonous Trees” or “Strychnine Hill”. Formerly the Chao Ponhea Yat High School, named after a Royal ancestor of King Norodom Sihanouk, the five buildings of the complex were converted in 1975 into a prison and interrogation centre. The Khmer Rouge renamed the complex “Security Prison 21” (S-21) and construction began to adapt the prison to the inmates: the buildings were enclosed in electrified barbed wire, the classrooms converted into tiny prison and torture chambers, and all windows were covered with iron bars and barbed wire to prevent escapes. Most prisoners at S-21 were held there for two to three months. However, several high-ranking Khmer Rouge cadres were held for several months. Within two or three days after they were brought to S-21, all prisoners were taken for interrogation. The torture system at Tuol Sleng was designed to make prisoners confess to whatever crimes they were charged with by their captors. Prisoners were routinely beaten and tortured with electric shocks, searing hot metal instruments and hanging, as well as through the use of various other devices. Some prisoners were cut with knives or suffocated with plastic bags. Other methods for generating confessions included pulling out fingernails while pouring alcohol on the wounds or holding prisoners’ heads under water. Females were sometimes raped by the interrogators, even though sexual abuse was against DK policy. The perpetrators who were found out were executed. Although many prisoners died from this kind of abuse, killing them outright was discouraged, since the Khmer Rouge needed their confessions.

Manneken Pis – Brussels, Belgium 2007

Manneken Pis is a Brusssel’s landmark. A legend goes like this: In
the 14th century Brussels was under siege by a foreign power. The
city had held their ground for quite some time. The attackers had
thought of a plan to place explosive charges at the city walls. A
little boy named Juliaanske from Brussels happened to be spying
on them as they were preparing. He urinated on the burning fuse
and thus saved the city.

Stonehenge – Salisbury, UK. 2007

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. Archaeologists believe the standing stones were erected around 2200 BC and the surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1986 in a co-listing with Avebury henge monument.
Stonehenge has been subjected to many theories about its origin, ranging from the academic worlds of archaeology to explanations from mythology and the paranormal.

Carlsbad Caverns – New Mexico

Carlsbad Cavern is one of over 300 limestone caves in a
fossil reef laid down by an inland sea 250 to 280 million
years ago. Twelve to fourteen thousand years ago,
American Indians lived in the Guadalupe Mountains;
some of their cooking ring sites and pictographs have
been found within the present day boundaries of the cave.
In 1923 Carlsbad Cavern was proclaimed a national monument.
Through illustrated articles published in magazines such as
National Geographic and by word of mouth, Carlsbad Cavern
became one of the world’s most celebrated caves.

 

 

 

 

Grand Canyon – Arizona, USA

Grand Cayon is not the deepest canyon in the world — both the
Cotahuasi Canyon in Peru and Hell’ Canyon on the
Oregon-Idaho border are deeper — but Grand Canyon
is known for its overwhelming size and its intricate and
colorful landscape. Geologically it is significant because
of the thick sequence of ancient rocks that are beautifully
preserved and exposed in the walls of the canyon.
These rock layers record much of the early geologic
history of the North American continent. Grand Canyon
is also one of the most spectacular examples of natural
erosion in the world.
The principal consensus among geologists is that the
Colorado River basin (of which the Grand Canyon
is a part) has developed in the past 40 million years
and that the Grand Canyon itself is probably less than
five to six million years old (with most of the downcutting
occurring in the last two million years). The result of all
this erosion is one of the most complete geologic columns
on the planet.
