In 1941, Ronald Searle was made a prisoner of war by the Japanese, after 14 months in a POW camp he was sent to work on the Burma Railway until May 1944 when he was sent to the notorious Changi prison. Throughout his captivity Searle drew, to record his experiences, hiding the drawings, and they have been become to be recognised as among the greatest, and most moving, record of WW2.
