Politicized Remembrance and Reparative Memorialization
This chapter begins with a description of Cambodia’s Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Choeung Ek Center for Genocide Crimes. Tuol Sleng and Choeung Ek reproduce master narratives of Vietnamese liberation. Both sites, which were rehabilitated and curated during the early years of the Vietnamese-ruled People’s Republic of Kampuchea, continue to engage a memory politics that obscures and makes unfeasible collective commemoration and diasporic reconciliation. The chapter addresses the problem of atrocity tourism, wherein former Khmer Rouge sites have since become popular destination points for a profitable, foreign-driven economy.
