Hellships – school history education series

Dutch School curriculum introduced Hellships to its students

In 2022, the schools in the provinces of Arnhem, Gelderland and North Holland introduced the Hellships into the mainstream curriculum. A series of books are included in the launch, including a cartoon comic book, which summaries the various stories around the second world war in Asian. Willem Punt’s story is prominently featured in all of the stories, as it provides a complete historical record as well as a personal first-hand record of the Junyo Maru, but also life as a POW in the Japanese Camps.
