Sri Lanka

My (late) father was a captain of the Ceylon Sappers (Engineers) Regiment and was assigned to the Burma Road front in South China. He had a scar on his foot due a wound caused by a grenade attack. He was working with roadbuilding and earthmoving equipment which was shipped mainly from the States.



Grecko – My father had several German engineer friends who were working on the Randeniyagala (Mahaweli) dam project in central Sri Lanka. The project was funded by the German government.

Well its weird because germans are quite used to the stories about WW2, but when you come in contact with that… Has anyone been to Hadamar? There was a clinic that missused under nazi-regime disable people for cruel tests – after the tests they were killed with gas in a shower and burnt in the oven.

If you really have the chance to visit that and to listen to a person telling you what happened there you will immediately feel distressed and shocked. I visited it two times. One time with japanese friends (that came to Germany the first time) – they got very pale.

I suppose no country covered itself with glory in WW2 – many dark deeds. We should keep that in mind to avoid such things in future.
