This year's Buddhist Stupor brings together hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life in Cambodia and around the world to commemorate the dead. One of the main attractions is the Uduong, which served as the former capital of Cambodia under several rulers from 1618 to 1866.

One of the most striking landscapes is the Mekong, which flows through the entire country, while it flows through the Cambodian lowlands and into the South China Sea. In recent years, it has increased in order to reverse the current of Lake Tonle Sap and to flood the surrounding landscape.

Although remote, the Mekong, 91 km from Phnom Penh, is a waterway that continues northwest to Siem Reap and the historic site of Angkor. The Neak Naks River in the north and east of the country, an important source of water for the river, is a bad example.

Choeung Ek is not an orchard in Cambodia, but served as a main killing ground for the Khmer Rouge. The terrible memories are there at every turn, which makes the visit to Choeong Ek a sobering one.

Of the 15,000 or so prisoners held in S-21, only a dozen survived, but some remain in Cambodia. It was the main political prison where suspected Angkar enemies were sent, and it was where the PRK's political opponents, whom they called the Khmer Rouge, were armed with supporters. However, the continuation of the Cambodian People's Liberation Army (KPRK) allowed them to call their entire political opponent the "Khmer Rouge" and gave the Vietnamese an excuse for leaving their troops in the country. Vietnamese troops, 30,000 of whom manned the Ho Chi Minh Trail and otherwise supported operations in South Vietnam and Eastern Cambodia, and armed and armed supporters of Choeung Ek.

Only in Manichean terms did the regime of the People's Republic of Korea work hard to channel people's anger toward the genocidal clique that ruled Cambodia from April 1975 to January 1979. Like his predecessors and other Cambodian regimes, his spokesmen arranged the story according to their present-day needs.

Cambodia's communist movement was an authentic revolutionary movement, even in 1975, when the movement suddenly and inexplicably spiraled out of control. Cambodia sided with the Vietnamese against the United States in 1965, and America continued to pump longingly into South Vietnam and Cambodia to stand between them, even after the US invasion and withdrawal from Southeast Asia began in 1969. Cambodian soil was taken to war, the fate of the archives and even the museum seemed uncertain until the Vietnamese withdrew their troops from Cambodia in 1989.

After the end of the Angkor era, Cambodia's capital moved south, but Phnom Penh remained the country's capital until the Khmer Rouge emptied the city in 1975. The entire population of the city was almost immediately forced to move to the countryside to work in agriculture, and it never regained its status as an urban center. In April 1975, Khmer Rouge troops invaded Phnom Penh and a large field of killing was laid in Choeung Ek, which is located on the outskirts of Phnom Penh and serves today as a memorial to the dead and the survivors.

Cambodia's ancestors had an empire called Angkor, which was located in the northwest of what is now Cambodia. In the northwest of the country there are massive stone temples built during the Khmer Empire. The 15th and 17th centuries represent the time when expansionists from Siam and Vietnam fought Cambodia for control of the north and south, as well as the east and west, respectively. Trained and supported by the NVA and communist China, the Khmer Rouge (Khmer Rouge) planned and built strength in Cambodia from the late 19th century to the early 21st century.

The PRK's history also emphasizes the long-standing official friendship between the regime, which is hard to find in the historical record. Many of the twenty people associated with the Eastern Zone were communists, since the Vietnamese were recruited there. Phnom Penh was empty while S-21 workers, including Khmer Rouge leaders and many of their supporters, hid and waited to escape.
