Last Friday, a group of Y9, H1 and H3 History students went to Jinguashi to visit the Gold Museum and the sites of the World War Two Prisoner of War camps. This was a return visit delayed by three years because of COVID-19 restrictions. Once again, the tireless Michael Hurst MBE was on hand to recount to students the fascinating and often terrible experiences of prisoners of war in Japanese camps on the occupied island during World War Two. It was a wet and misty day, but spirits remained high, and students hopefully came away with an idea of what life was like at that time, both in the mines and the camps where the prisoners stayed.
