Arthur Thitherington has led the fight for justice for the treatment the POWs received at the hands of the Japanese. For more than 50 years he has battled to gain a meaningful apology from the Japanese Government and for compensation for what he and his comrades suffered. In "Kinkaseki: One Day at a Time," he details exactly what happened to him, and so many others, during the brutal years he spent as a prisoner in a Japanese slave labor camp. "The scars on my body have healed, but there remain scars that I am unable to show. Twenty years old when the Japanese took me prisoner, I spent my twenty-first birthday working in the copper mine at Kinkaseki. Almost four years of irrecoverable youth were left in the depths of that mine. I do not forget. I do not forgive." Arthur Thitherington
