Changi POW Camp World War 2

Changi camp was used by the Japanese in World War 2 to house both civilian and Allied Prisoner of War. Located in Singapore it was used for the thousands civilians and POWs from the Fall of Singapore.

Although separated in different barracks (the allied POWs were in the Salarang Barracks which is actually located outside the Changi Prison camp where the civilians were kept); the name Changi is still used to describe both locations. The camp like all Japanese POW camps was harsh and many died due to the treatment received and lack of food, medical supplies.
