Death Railway Bridge, Allied War Cemetery, War Museum and the Thailand – Burma Railway Center – 21/1/2013

On the 21st of January, 2013, we went to the Death Railway Bridge, Allied War Cemetery, Jeath War Museum and the Thailand-Burma Railway Center.

We first went to the Jeath War Museum, which stood for Japanese, English, Australian, Thai and Holland servicemen. It showed you the conditions they lived in, and pictures of the prisoners of war (POWs) and their things.

We then went to the Allied War Cemetery, which we looked upon from a distance. It contained only a small fraction of the POWs that died.

Across the road there was the best museum, the Thailand-Burma Railway Center, which was a bit sad because it had things and letters from the loved ones of the POWs. It also had models of the rail tracks.

After that we went to the 300 meter long bridge built by the prisoners of war. It is commonly known as the Bridge Over the River Kwai, which is now legendary.
