First off, salute and thank you to Australians for doing so much and their sacrifice for Sabah. My family was from Sandakan. According to my dad, my 2 uncles whom were taken by the Japs and never came home because they were helping the pows to escape. To this day my family do not know what's the fate of my uncles or where their remains are.

Korean draftee did it. 148 Koreans were convicted of Class B and C war crimes, 23 of whom were sentenced to death including Korean prison guards who were particularly notorious for their brutality. Justice Bert Röling, who represented the Netherlands at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, noted that "many of the commanders and guards in POW camps were Koreans – the Japanese apparently did not trust them as soldiers – and it is said that they were sometimes far more cruel than the Japanese."
The secrets of the Japanese WWII crimes need to be revealed and remembered by all. Had no idea this Australian tragedy occurred.

I created a short film adaptation of “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption”. I absolutely love this book! Truly inspiring! I would really appreciate it if you checked out my short film. Even if you don’t, I just want to say what an incredible hero Louie is and that we all have something to learn from his story. /watch?v=B5KfIv8k9DM
