It was here, during WW II, that Allied POW soldiers were
subjected to harsh treatment at the hands of their Japanese
captors. Changi Prison is still in use as a correctional facility
and it is the place of execution for convicted drug offenders. Half
a mile (1km) from the old site, next to the prison, is the new
Changi Chapel and Museum. The display of photographs, letters and
drawings in the museum are a moving tribute to the legacy of the
Japanese occupation. During this period that spanned three and a
half years more than 50,000 civilians and soldiers were captured
and imprisoned. Visitors have access to a variety of videos and
literature relating to the war years.
