On November 02, 2016, the management and teachers of the American Intercon Institute (Aii) at Mao Tse Tong Campus organized an open field study and led a group of level 3 and 4 students to the Choeung Ek Genocidal Center (Killing Field) located in the southwest of Phnom Penh. The primary purposes of the organization were to open up an ideal opportunity for students to broaden their general knowledge regarding the Khmer history, and provided students with a chance to strengthen their lifelong bonds of friendship.

On the margin of the visit, all the students participated in mourning and dedicating to spirits of all victims by offering flowers and lighting incense sticks and candles in accordance with Khmer culture and tradition, walked through the green plant corridor, and mediated to liberate of all victims’ spirits those who had been murdered in memorial area.
