Kanchanaburi War Cemetery

This cemetery contains the remains of 6,982 war prisoners who lost their lives during the captivity by the Japanese Army that forced them to build the Bridge over the River Kwai and the Death Railway.

The Japanese, following their invasion of Thailand during World War II, brought British, Dutch, Australian and American prisoners to Thailand by the Southern route. Impressed laborers were also used to complete the rushed construction of the railroad, which is an alternative to the sea route to Rangoon via Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the sea route then being closed by allied submarines and aircraft.
