Welcome
 


Welcome!
This website provides information not only for former Prisoners of War that were forced to work on the Burma-Siam Railroad and the Sumatra Railroad and their relatives but also for anyone interested in that horrible part of the history in WWII in the Far East.

Intentions

The Dutch Foundation SHBSS (Foundation for Commemoration the Burma-Siam Railroad and the Sumatra Railroad) is an organization of volunteers aiming for an annual commemoration at the monument on the Bronbeek estate in Arnhem (NL). During the ceremony we commemorate the victims of the Death Railroads that did not survive. For relatives and friends of the victims and the remaining survivors this is an exclusive opportunity to meet and exchange information The SHBSS initiates and organizes projects, such as research, exhibitions, publications for public information and education, in order to keep the memories alive.

New visitors of this site are invited to subscribe by using the 
registration form! Donations to help us realize the goals of the Foundation are more than welcome. The linked form will help you further to become sponsor!
