Visiting Death Railway Museum definitely gave me clearer picture of what happen during World War II in particular during the period of Death Railway construction. Facts are put up and props/visual aids are leveraged on, making the history lesson pretty interesting. However, no photograph or any other visual recording is allowed in the museum. So it was a great time to pick up my history lesson!
As we were about to exit the museum, at the cafeteria located at first floor, I took a peep of the flat ground ahead that holds the graves of 6982 allied prisoners of wars (POWs). There was the spot in our itinerary.
After walking about five minutes, I reached a square concrete arch or the entrance into the cemetery.
On my left, there was an alter and a plaque of gold lining words saying 'I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.'
Entering the cemetry area, I saw a huge white cross in the middle of the ground with rows of tablets on both sides to remember the sacrifice of those perished while building the Death Railway from Thailand to Burma.
May They Rest in Peace and God Bless!
