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.
