SIR WAERY DUNLOP PEACE PARKS: THAILAND BURMA RAILWAY MEMORIAL
The notorious Burma-Thailand Railway which was constructed using the forced labour of thousands of Allied Prison-ers of War and captive Asian labourers during World War II, is dotted with stories of atrocious conditions and agonizing death. But there are also truly amazing stories of heroism, survival and mateship under the most arduous of conditions. One of these stories of enduring friendship actually began many years after the end of the war.
To commemorate their remarkable bond, KhunKanit then dedicated 15 acres of his resort as the Weary Dunlop Park, which now stands as a private memorial to the man KhunKanit continues to describe as a dear friend, an inspirational human being, and a testament to the art of survival under harsh and brutal conditions. The park also contains a wide range of private collections and displays which are a valuable source of information on the history of the Burma-Thailand Railway.
JACK CHALKER’S GALLERY
65 years have passed since a brilliant young art student set sail from Liverpool to fight Japanese aggression in the Far East. Captured on arrival in the chaotic fall of Singapore, JACK CHALKER joined the 60,00o allied prisoners driven to the limits of human endurance in the slave labour camps of the infamous Burma Railway. ” A sleeper laid for every life lost ” ran the legend, and the author’s brushes and paints, improvised with genius from the unlikeliest of sources, record not only the misery, squalor, savagery, heroism and fortitude of the prison camps, but also the horrific reality of disease, wounds and the ravages of starvation. This collection, having been donated to MrKanitWanachote by the artist, is now on permanent display in this Jack Chalker Gallery.
In later life Chalker described the conditions on the railway as “singularly horrific”. Torture, malnutrition, illness and execution were daily perils. “If you weren’t working hard enough they would make you stand and hold a stone above your head,”recalled Chalker. “You picked it up, which was better than collapsing because then they kicked you all over the place.”
