In October 2022 Netflix re-released the 1957 movie The Bridge on the River Kwai, a fictional account of the infamous Death Railway built by Allied prisoners of war in World War II. The bridge of the story was an important link that would connect Burma with Thailand, thus enabling and securing Japanese supply lines. I remember watching this as a youngster and being impressed by the heroism of the incarcerated prisoners, and their ability to withstand abusive captors and their torture.
