Anzac Day: dawn services around the world

Show thumbnails

Australians walk along Hellfire Pass, a railway cutting on the Burma-Siam "Death Railway" constructed during the Japanese occupation, after an Anzac Day memorial ceremony for soldiers who died during World War Two in Kanchanaburi province, 180 km west of Bangkok. The dawn ceremony was held on Wednesday for the prisoners of war who were forced to work on the Burma-Siam railway. More than 60,000 POWs were forced to work on the railway, and over 13,000 of them died during its construction.
