The infamous Bridge over the River Kwai
Built by POWs and local forced labour for the Japanese Siam-Burma railway (also known as Death Railway) in the second world war. The railway was about 415 km long and during its construction about 13,000 POWs and between 80,000 and 100,000 civilians died due to the inhumane conditions imposed by the maddened Japanese. The bridge was finally destroyed. The two parts in the middle are new (reparations from Japan) while the curved parts at the ends are still original.
