Three Lives (2006) oil on canvas 40 x 100 cm
They say a life was lost for every sleeper laid on the difficult sections of the railway. In addition to the 13,000 Allied POWs who died, it is now believed that some 100,000 Asian civilian labourers also perished working on the railway. Lured by the promise of good money, these workers came with wives and children in countless numbers and were treated as badly as the prisoners. There are no records of numbers and who they were. There are no graves.
