Event description

Description

This illustrated talk by Jackie Passman is based on the objective, distressing but occasionally humorous diary entries of her late father, who was one of the many prisoners captured by the Japanese when Singapore fell
in 1942. They record the deprivations of Changi POW camp, the horrific death march up country to the Thai-Burma border and the unbelievable hardships for the prisoners who built the Thai-Burma railway.
The diary and accompanying memorabilia are now held at the Imperial War Museum in London
