Dutch war dead families lay wreath

Family members of Dutch who died in Japan during World War II lay flowers Wednesday Oct. 14 at a memorial cross honoring 869 Dutch war dead in Mizumaki, Fukuoka Prefecture, in southwestern Japan. The cross originally marked the deaths of 53 Dutch prisoners who were brought to Mizumaki to work in the town's coal mine. The firm running the colliery put up the marker before Allied occupation troops arrived to conduct a probe into their deaths.
