Show thumbnails

Australians look at a memorial plaque dedicated to World War Two soldiers, at Hellfire Pass in Kanchanaburi province, 180 km west of Bangkok. An Anzac Day ceremony was held on Wednesday for the prisoners of war who were forced to work on the Burma-Siam railway during the Japanese occupation. More than 60,000 POWs were forced to work on the railway, and over 13,000 of them died during its construction.
