The Thai-Burma Death Railway: Remembering WW2 in Kanchanaburi

The famous *novel, Bridge on the River Kwai, and *film of the same name tell the true story of the Allied POWs who were captured by the Japanese after the fall of Singapore in February 1942 and brought to Thailand to work on the infamous "Death Railway". Most of the POW camps and historical sites marking it are located in and around Kanchanaburi, and visiting them is a powerful and somber reminder of the Second World War in Thailand.
