Archive of Prisoners

Over the three years of S-21 operation, prisoners were registered and identified upon arrival. Many were photographed wearing a tag showing, in the early years, only a number. In later years, the tag included a number, date of entry and name. Through these tags, the museum has been able to categorize prisoners by year. The more than 15,000 prisoners were men, women, children and foreigners. Here is a small sample:
