Soldiers were forced to remove the rock using no more than picks, hammers and their bare hands. Of the 1,000 Australian and British soldiers who took 12 weeks to clear the stretch of mountain, 700 died.
The memorial comprises a trail where visitors follow the old railway track into the jungle and a museum. The museum contains pictures and tools alongside video exhibitions and showing of documentaries about the events. Like elsewhere on this trail, the memorial and museum are extremely moving places. If you are connected to the events through relations who were imprisoned here, or any other fashion, the experience can be quite wrenching. This site is of particular importance to Australians. The Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce) supports the museum. Four hundred Australian prisoners began work at Hellfire Pass on Anzac Day in 1943
