Mr. Hang Nisay

Chief of Project and Planning Section
Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum

I have been working for Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum since 2009 after I graduated from the Royal University of Fine Arts in the field of Archaeology. I first started as an administrative staff for the museum, and in 2010, he was appointed to another position as an English tour guide. Working as a tour guide for this museum is not easy because I had to face horrific stories every day, recalling the loss of family members of my mother to the genocide. But I found it is very important to work in this field and to share this with visitors. It is what I have to do. In 2015, I was promoted to be chief of the Exhibition section for the museum. In this capacity, I worked with my team to put together different temporary and mobile exhibitions. Since 2016, I become Chief of Project and Planning section, coordinating Exhibition and Education team and the Tour Guide team.

I am very happy to work here because I could take part in sharing the history of the Khmer Rouge to visitors, particularly young Cambodians so that they have a better understanding of the history as it shapes the future.
