The Kwai bridge symbolizes the brutality of war built by thousands of prisoners of war under the command of the Japanese. The railway was built of wooden log constructed by the allied prisoners of the second world war. Most of these men were Australians, Dutch and British and they had been working steadily southwards from Thanbyuzayat (Burma) to link with other POW on the Thai side of the railway.
