Visiting the Bridge on the River Kwai

The Bridge on the River Kwai is quite well known among the Dutch. It is part of the so called ‘railway of death’, running from Thailand to Burma (Myanmar). The railway was created during WWII by the Japanese to be able to supply their troops in Burma. In 1943, Prisoners of War and Asian civilians were forced to build it under terrible circumstances. Eventually, this led to the death of almost 3.000 Dutch, 7.000 British, 3.000 Australian and 150 American soldiers and ten thousands of Asian civil laborers.
