First-hand experience: Never have my emotions been torn apart as much as they were at the war museum, I found the experience to be more eye-opening and shocking than Auschwitz, S21 or the Killing Fields. It goes without saying that them three places were all horrific.
Our guide was brilliant, he gave us a harrowing account of his life. The bleakest moments in his life included discovering his family had all been killed, getting his back burned when he stood too close to a rocket launcher, losing a leg and being shot. He still has shrapnel stuck in his body which he insisted we felt. As I felt the shrapnel a shiver ran through my entire body.
