S-21 survivor to design victims' memorial

A KHMER Rouge victims’ association headed by S-21 survivor Chum Mey has commissioned artist and fellow prison survivor Vann Nath to design a memorial to the victims of S-21. In a statement, the Victims’ Association of Democratic Kampuchea yesterday approved the appointment of Vann Nath, who is known for his graphic depictions of torture at the notorious interrogation centre. He will work on designing the memorial and establishing a budget for the project, both of which will then be forwarded to the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts for review. As many as 16,000 people are estimated to have died at S-21 during the 1975-79 rule of the Khmer Rouge.
