Shreds of Evidence: Textile and Clothing Remains at Tuol Sleng

> Paru le : 29.04.2020

À Tuol Sleng, avant incarcération, les prisonniers étaient photographiés avec leurs propres vêtements. Depuis 2014, ces restes textiles qui pourrissaient abandonnés dans la prison sont en phase de réhabilitation. On compte près de 5 000 pièces qui, une fois conservées, pourraient apporter de précieuses informations sur les victimes et leur vie en captivité. Cet article met en évidence le caractère unique et sensible de ces objets et leur valeur comme preuves matérielles du génocide cambodgien.

Mots clés : textiles, uniforme, Tuol Sleng, génocide, Cambodge, conservation, Krama.
