Conservation of 20th-Century Ethnographic Objects at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum

This project includes the conservation of textiles and training in preventive conservation for museum staff. It directly supports the U.S. embassy’s efforts to build capacity at the museum, which endures as a reminder of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge.
