During World War II, Sandakan prisoner of war camp in British North Borneo held nearly 2,500 Allied prisoners. By war's end, only six would still be alive. The story of the atrocities committed by the Japanese at Sandakan is one of the grimmest of the Pacific War. Shot in Australia, Japan and Malaysia, this documentary recounts a tragic story of prisoners of war: the use of forced labour, the death marches through the Borneo jungle and the rescue of only six survivors. Return to Sandakan also examines the legacy of these events today for survivors and their families. For those whose lives have been changed by the tragedy of Sandakan, it is a crime that is hard to forgive, impossible to forget. A Film Australia National Interest Program.
