5.0 out of 5 stars Fight for dignity of men and freedom in the world, 25 Jun 2010
This review is from: The War Diaries of "Weary" Dunlop: Java and the Burma-Thailand Railway, 1942-45 (Paperback)
My father himself died on the Birma railway. I've been there for four times.
Also the memories of sir Dunlopp was told there.
My wish that freedom will come all over the world. I told my story to schoolchildren in the Netherlands.
Thank you.

I am sorry to read that your father died out there. One book I read said how amazing the Dutch prisoners were. I just hope that today's Japanese are told the truth of that terrible time in history.

Thank you so much for your attention.
I've been four times to Thailand to visit the Cemetery in Kanchanabury

Beste mevrouw van Ommen, mijn vader is ook slachtoffer van de jappen geweest, maar is gelikkig levend uit de oorlog gekomen. U zou ook het boek van Eric Lomax "the railway man" moeten lezen. M.vr.gr

Dear Katinka, ik heb veel boeken over de Birma railway gelezen en ben gastdocent op scholen in Nederland om over die oorlog te vertellen. Thanks for your attention. Tineke van Ommen
