THIS TOUR HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 2nd.

It is not a well-known fact, but in 1942, the Japanese began bringing Allied POWs (Prisoners of War) to Taiwan from Southeast Asia and held them under horrendous conditions until Japan surrendered in 1945. These POWs were captured at the surrender of Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies. The largest of the fourteen camps in Taiwan was in Kinkaseki, today's Jinguashi. This fascinating, full-day historic tour led by Michael, Director of the Taiwan POW Camps Memorial Society, will take us from Ruifang to Jinguashi via Jiufen along the route taken by the POWs and includes a visit to the Gold Mining Museum (admission fee included) and the POW Memorial Park on the site of the camp. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring water, a packed lunch and rain/sun protection as needed.

Instructor: Michael Hurst
