Cruel and Inhumane Treatment. A Virtual Cemetery created by: Muriel Butler
Description: It is a well documented fact, that prior to and during WWII, the Japanese treated their prisoners with disdain and inflicted horrific punishments. Allied Prisoners of War, forced to capitulate by British Command, and regarded as cowards by the Japanese, as they had "lost face", were humiliated, starved, deprived of medical treatment and worked like slaves. Occasionally, punishment was meted out that overshadowed all others. This is a tribute to ex POW who died horrific deaths as a result of these punishments and general treatment by the Japanese.
