In association with the Sydney Writer's Festival best selling author Tim Bowden will be appearing at Hurstville Library. Tim will talk about his book The Changi Camera, a unique record of the Changi POW camp and the Thai-Burma Railway. When the Allied forces in Singapore collapsed in February 1942, Private George Aspinall joined his fellow Australians on the march to Changi. He carried a folding Kodak 2 camera, given to him by an uncle as a departure present, and on it he captured rare images of three-and-a-half years of captivity - which would later be used as evidence in war crimes trials. They have also helped Tim Bowden tell the stories of these brave Australian soldiers.
